screamer: autobiography of nick blinko
original, and humorous, Primal Screamer offers a new view on the theme
of "troubled youth". This autobiographical account (though the names
have been changed to protect the guilty) differs from all others in
that it is written entirely in the third person via a diary "written"
by Nick/Nat's psychotherapist. The story focuses on Nat's life from
the ages of 18 to 24 and the emotional turmoils he endures. Parallels
may one day be drawn between Nat Snoxell and Holden Caulfield. Comes
with brilliant illustrations by Nick Blinko.
