Ian Fraser | 3 comments Hi all, thought I'd let the group know that my memoir - previously published by Penguin Books, is now on Kindle.
Ian Fraser's brutally frank autobiography of a turbulent childhood and life in the army under Apartheid was first published by Penguin Books in 1993.

The work earned a CNA Literary Award nomination in 1994.

Quoting from the jacket of the print edition: 'Ian Fraser is a powerful voice in South African theater. Satire is his vehicle for the most part and he is probably best known for his one-man shows and his plays, which have gained him the respect and admiration of critics and public alike. He won the 1990 Vita Award for comedy and, in 1992, the Amstel Playwright of the Year Award. His plays have been performed widely around South Africa. This is his first book.'

Since the book's original release, Fraser relocated to the USA, where his plays have been staged at various venues, most recently at the Brown/Trinity Playwrights Repertory Theatre in Providence, Rhode Island.

Due to its graphic content, this memoir is recommended for adults only.
