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.
