The latest book from Canada's Angry Young Playwright Brad Fraser includes a reprint of his infamous Unidentified Human Remains and the True Nature of Love alongside the screenplay of his recently produced film version Love and Human Remains (NeWest). The former is one of the most important Canadian plays written in the last fifty years and ought to be on everyone's reading list. Its frenetic tempo and visceral depiction of sex and violence are nothing less than compelling. It is a romance, a murder mystery and a coming-of-age story in one bloody package. Love and Human Remains re-examines the work in cinematic form, where Fraser has less practice. Even though his text is filled with excessive stage directions, he manages to capture the mood and pace of the play. Denys Arcand of Jesus of Montreal fame directed Love and Human Remains, and clarified the screenplay's muddy spots. Reading this book is an evolutionary threestep: read the play, then the screenplay and then go out and rent the film. Like any good trilogy, the middle part's a little slow but the whole thing won't disappoint.
