FROT THE WORLD

FROT THE WORLD

Fer Boyd

Canal

Inside these pages a carousel of characters frot at the magnitude of the minutiae. A cabal of boozing jesters in a piss-soaked pub garden wonder if mystery will ever become trendy again; a pack of thirsty butterflies stake out a writer’s apartment during a red dust storm and discover the limits of optimism; and an uncooperative chorus of organs discuss how to handle the snaking ouroboros of denial and prediction faced by unwilling humans. Through never-ending conversations fuelled by pulsating objects and tragic comedy, Frot the World seeks out the turning points of our present world, holding them up to the light for questioning. In this hectically current collection of fiction, our heads are dunked in and out of places and bodies, getting us high off choosing to stay alive.
