The Dark Side of the Billboard
The Dark Side of the Billboard is an eclectic collection of stories that span many genres from literary to science fiction, magical realism and horror. These are haunting tales that lurk in a bizarre world one step away from the veneer that coats over everyday existence. Behind the brightly coloured billboard is another world, a world where psychological and physical cruelty hovers, where a child’s love for his grandmother turns bizarre, where fathers both surprise and disappoint their sons, where troubled characters escape within their own imaginations. Settings vary from lush gardens, malls, and transcontinental buses, to interior places of the mind. David Fraser tells these darkside stories in an intimate, compassionate way through action, dialogue and lyrical imagery.
