Scoundrel Days Giveaway

Tags: /

We have one copy of Scoundrel Days to give away. To go in the draw, simply email us at editors@newtownreviewofbooks.com.au with SCOUNDREL in the subject line and your name and address in the body of the email by 6pm March 9, 2017. As we are unable to post giveaways overseas, Australian residents only please.

In Scoundrel Days Brentley Frazer tells the story of his youth – wild, disillusioned, impassioned and desolate. Born into a Christian cult in outback Queensland, Frazer escapes through literature and poetry, drugs and violence, sex and alcohol; and his ensuing rejection of religion, authority and the ‘way things are’ leads to adventures, desperation and, just possibly, redemption.

‘Readers will revel in this wonderful piece of writing for the way it engages all the senses with its poetic language, and writers will love it for its investigation of the nature of language itself, and how the poet compresses reality into words.’ – Annette Hughes, NRB.
