Iris on Laundry Day

About the Book

As found in the Louisiana Wonderland, this is the story of Iris who is red and rosy and soft everywhere from her hair to her fuzzy slippers to the heart and her sleeve, and Frank, who has a head full of spiders and a broken watch in his inside coat pocket. They live in your town, probably. Perhaps you can find them in that juke joint under the railroad bridge off Eight Street. It's a tale of love and drugs and more drugs amongst the lost twenty-somethings in the lure and blur oflife on the Strip.

About the Author

Frank Trautman
Frank Trautman

Francis Trautman resides in the Carl Family Motor Lodge in St. Martin Parish, Louisiana, and also for long periods in the backseat of his '73 Chevy Impala. "Graveyard Frank" is currently working on his next project, a travel guide to East St. Louis, as well, as a script for an episode of NBC's "Watching Ellie." Please do not inform him that the program has been cancelled. He holds degrees in Semiotics and Forensic Entomology, both at the Mail Order University of Toledo, Ohio, in addition to an honorary PhD from the Businessmen's Association of Greater Baton Rouge. In his spare time, Frank enjoys his collection of porcelain unicorn and velvet pain tings of clowns [Not the sad ones!], and his turn-offs are legal action and girls who won't commit. His advice to young writers?: "Hop a bus. Join a cult. Kill a vagrant. It's just great literature. Period."

This is his story. Part of it. Probably.
