Pants All Night
Synopses & Reviews
Feast on these deliciously odd stories from Portland's brilliant writer and performer Frayn Masters.
Masters' writing is both surprising and compulsively readable. Her narrations shift easily from the realistic to the fantastical &$151; a fetus is traded from womb to womb via cooler, a surly Guatemalan bullies her family and a dish sponge hooks a wife. Bite through a vision that is twisted, sublime and heart-warming all at the same time.
"Frayn Masters craftily twists tiny, human details until they're dark jokes that are larger than life. Masters' Pants All Night is a little gem of a collection, a quick hit of the surreal that'll make you laugh out loud." Jami Attenberg
"Vibrating at the exact membrane barrier outside and inside the skin, between consciousness and unconsciousness, between the National Enquirer and dream time is the vertigo story poem (stoem) style of Frayn Masters. If you can open your brain she won't need a key. I am happy. Lick this book." Chris Ballew, Presidents of the United States of America
"Like the very best part of 'unscripted' televison, Frayn Masters presents a warped version of reality that's both freaky and recognizable and deliciously addictive." Brangien Davis, Editrix-in-Chief, Swivel Magazine
