Alan Kane Fraser

Alan Kane Fraser was born in Handsworth, Birmingham, in the era when that district was famous for its riots. He has been variously a priest, a housing officer and a charity CEO, in which capacity he wrote for a number of publications, including The Guardian. He is also the author of an award-winning play, Random Acts of Malice.

He still lives in Birmingham, with his wife and a woefully inadequate number of bookshelves.
