The Struggle Outside

Revised edition with an Afterword by the author

Authored by Raymond Fraser
Edition: 3rd

"ln the mad few days covered by the novel the conspirators' power struggle rages in an atmosphere of surreal humor. But this is more than a funny book. Today's news about guerrilla forces like this make the story disturbingly plausible." READING FOR PLEASURE (U.S.)

"Exuberant, comic, with a satiric edge frequently bordering on absurdist fantasy." LINDA SANDLER, Saturday Night

"An almost surrealistic account.... it represents the best in contemporary satire. Outrageously funny." AARON MICHELSON, Best Sellers, New York

"Absolutely hilariously funny... Farce is not easy to sustain, but Raymond Fraser can mix the absurdities of humanity into fine, plausible fiction." MICHAEL O. NOWLAN, The Gleaner

"A great read from a talented writer." LYMAN WARD, Actor ("Ferris Buehler's Day Off", etc)

"Spellbinding." NORMA WEST LINDER, Poet
