The satirical fiction of Vernon Frazer shows an absolute skewering of, and therefore a great depth of understading of, the intricacies of Western culture. With enthusiasm, humor, and energy, he tackles those mores and folkways that we hold most dear, with a zany style that will leave you laughing, even as you nervously acknowledge his insights. In his stories, there is no difference between the sane American and the mad, and he fearlessly illustrates why there never was.
Vernon Frazerís poetry and fiction have appeared in Cafť Review, First Intensity, Jack Magazine, Lost and Found Times, Massacre, Moria, Shampoo, Sidereality and many other literary magazines. He has written six books of poetry. He introduced his longpoem, IMPROVISATIONS (I-XXIV), at The Poetry Project at St. Markís Church in Manhattan. Vernon has produced five recordings of poetry with free jazz accompaniment and appeared on several recordings with the late jazz saxophonist Thomas Chapin, including their duo release, Song of Baobab. Vernon's collection of short fiction finished as a finalist in the 1996 Black Ice/FC2 Fiction Contest. His most recent novel is Relicís Reunions. He recently finished editing an anthology of Post-Beat poetry for publication in the Peopleís Republic of China. IMPROVISATIONS (XXV-L), the next sequence of the Improvisations series, and Commercial Fiction, a novel, are Vernonís newest publications.
