Manatomy is a collection of wry, witty and cheeky poems exploring how nature,
nurture, pop culture, prejudice and politics shape the identity of camp gay man
James McDermott. Structured in three parts – ‘Boy’, ‘Youth’ and ‘Man’ – Manatomy interrogates how
the experiences of growing up gay in a homophobic world and in rural millennial
England affect a gay man’s relationships with himself, his partners, the LGBTQ+
community and the wider world.
