Brentley Frazer

BRENTLEY FRAZER is an Australian author whose poems, prose and academic papers have been published in numerous national and international anthologies, journals, magazines and other periodicals since 1992. He holds a MA (writing) from James Cook University and a PhD (experimental creative non-fiction) from Griffith University. He is also a lecturer at Griffith University and the editor-in-chief of Bareknuckle Poet Journal of Letters. His first book, a novelised memoir, Scoundrel Days (UQP, 2017) was described as "a gritty, Gen-X memoir, recounting wild escapades into an under-culture of drugs and violence and sex” (ABC Radio National). The Australian newspaper compared Frazer's ability to shock, surprise and unsettle with that of Marcel Duchamp, concluding: "This is dirty realism at its dirtiest”. He lives in Brisbane.
