The Madness Of Youth

Authored by Raymond Fraser
Edition: 3rd

In THE MADNESS OF YOUTH author Raymond Fraser digs into the disreputable past of a respected poetry-writing librarian. Set in the Maritimes and Montreal, the novel paints a striking picture of wayward youth in the early sixties

"Reading Fraser's writing is like listening to the voice of an epoch. He explores the things that made the sixties and seventies so legendary." MICAH O'DONNELL, The Aquinian

"A great storyteller and one of the country's truly
under-appreciated natural resources." LAWRENCE CREAGHAN, The Write Stuff

"The best literary voice to come belling out of the Maritimes in decades." FARLEY MOWAT

"Fraser has always "owned" the restless, wandering Maritimer as a fictional character, but this complex, exasperating 'split personality character Quann' and the believable worlds created for him is a real coup. There are great gobs of sadness, original comic touches and just the right blend of plot and narrative comments to make this a huge pleasure to read and a learning experience to boot. In my view the best writing Fraser has ever done." PHILIP DESJARDINS, Philip Desjardins Productions
