Fler böcker av Dave Franklin
born in wales, dave franklin published his first story atsixteen in a national fishing magazine. he immigrated to australia and made his living as a reporter, earning the distinction of being sacked twice by a perth-based newspaper group. he then spent nearly three years teaching english in korea, during which the mortality rate of the children under his care remained at an impressive zero. he now teaches esl to adults in brisbane, helping (among others) thai lady boys get to grips with their past participles.
the major theme of dave's small, character-driven stories is alienation, the symptoms of which include male immaturity, misogyny, dysfunction, xenophobia, religion, violenceand a childish glee in winding up the politically correct. his books lack car chases and explosions; instead he prefers outlandish, twisted sex scenes that focus on exasperated loners full of doubt.
readers who like his work tend to see its black comedy (and disdain for his own characters) whereas his harshest critics take everything at face value. indeed, some observers would suggest the highlight of his writing career, which has produced ten novels, remains being published in a fishing magazine.
