“Brad Fraser’s new release . . . manages to make an intensely personal story bigger than merely the reflections of the famously bad-boy playwright from Edmonton who went on to success as a writer in cities from New York to Los Angeles. Framed through the lens of the AIDS crisis, All the Rage gives context to the lives of gay men in Canada in the 1980s and ’90s. At the same time, Fraser . . . charts an inspiring path for people who wonder how they will ever make their way in a world that doesn’t want them.”The Edmonton Journal

“Playwright Brad Fraser’s new memoir fans the flames of his provocative legacy.” Quill & Quire

“Brad Fraser tells his own story with all the honesty, integrity and unwillingness to compromise that we know and love from his plays.” —Kelly Oxford, director, screenwriter, bestselling author
 
“Brad Fraser’s All the Rage displays all of the outrageous passion, raunchy sex, wit, political insight, sorrow and anger that are the hallmarks of his wonderful plays. His travels through a Canadian Dickensian landscape makes you devour this memoir in one addictive gulp.” —Charles Busch, author of Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, Die Mommie Die and The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife

“Being immune to self-pity doesn’t, happily, make Fraser immune to anger. All the Rage is full of artful skewerings of obtuse theatre administrators, know-it-all critics and hateful homophobes of all kinds. It’s a pleasure to see how little time has mellowed Fraser. His memoir is a hymn of support for fearless, risky Canadian theatre, for the queer community and for all marginalized people.” Alberta Views
