Bent Boy Book‘s latest publication “Remembered Men” by Shane Allison is a must read for all lovers of experimental narrative and/or gay sex. The book is an adventure into gay life told in exquisite lyrics of love, lust, and loss, “Remembered Men” is a must read in the post everything period of the forever now. A long poem in the great tradition of American erotic poetry, this is a roller coaster ride in which you’re always getting off but never exiting the ride. Once the book is opened the eyes and soul soar into a world wherein the individual is transposed upon the collective, every cock it’s own and every cock the world. This book and Shane Allison reinforce the power in chapbooks.
