Endangered Species: A Surly Bear in the Bible Belt

Jeff Mann (Author)
Available

Description

Two-time Lambda Literary and four-time National Leather Association award-winning author Jeff Mann's newest collection of personal essays speaks out against homophobia and the outdated ideas of masculinity demanded by life in Appalachia and the American South. Mann's writings will arouse, amuse, and provoke. Whether remarking on treating a Narcissus to dinner in New Orleans, mulling over the decision to purchase a hand gun because of the current political clime, or fantasizing with his husband over a pair of burly house painters lingering over stiff brushes, Mann's bold statements are gruff insights about what gay life is--and should be--below the Mason-Dixon Line.
