Small Town Kid – review

My thanks to Ms Jade Li for this wonderful review of my Small Town Kid memoir. Ms Jade Li’s review is such a thrill for me, that I reproduce it in full, below.

December 14, 2018

From the dedication poem, “I Can Hardly Wait to Show You”, to “Circular Square Town”, Frank Prem’s chronological journey from infancy to the present has a familiar feel to it; almost as if you were take a walk through your own memory lane to recall the innumerable small, but unforgettable moments that make up a life.
Frank’s style is minimalist, with plenty of room to fill in the blanks with your own conjecture or possible parallel memories. Written about an Australian town that was a gold-rush town in its day, it touches on those times as well as describes the landscapes there.
Frank’s work is approachable, understandable, and sensitive in its handling of the most delicate of subjects.

    • Thank you, so much Cage. I feel blessed to have found yself able to record the times even as they were becoming a distant memory.

      It was really lovely talking to people at the shopping centre today, too – about the stories and the times and their own experiences of ‘way back then’.
