Peter Franks


Peter Franks was born in 1962. His personal history has given him an abiding interest in the politics of nationalism and identity. His early life was peripatetic and he learnt and unlearnt in quick succession how to speak English with an Australian, Canadian and Irish accent. Coming to reside in the Home Counties in his early teens he was relieved to learn that communication was best effected without any accent at all.

Mr Franks went to art college where his limited talent was quickly spotted by himself. He studied history at university were he found it easy and an effective way of avoiding work. His fondness for Europe and the French in particular was born from a strip search by French customs whilst on holiday in his early twenties.

Mr Franks continues to combine a passion for European travel with an abiding interest in cars. In the 90s he went on a 3,000-mile motoring holiday that went as far east as Bulgaria. He now travels to France regularly to enjoy that unique British motor racing institution, the Le Mans 24-hour race.

Mr Franks has yet to learn to drive but is fortunate to know people who have.

Mr Franks is unmarried and has a declining interest in cinema.


Out of Europe
Price: $3.00 USD. Words: 61,080. Language: English. Published: February 29, 2016. Categories: Fiction » Themes & motifs » Political
'Out of Europe', a short novel on what will come from, come to, and come out of Europe. The novel parodies the delusions and arrogance out of which Europe is being forged, underpinned by a forensic dissection of all its social, economic and demographic weaknesses and garnished with just the right amount of sex and violence. A must for Eurosceptics.
