A much-lauded essayist and poet, Jeff Mann writes of the passion and pain of being a Southern gentleman who happens to be invested in many worlds: the hungers of gay bear culture, the propensities of leather and bondage, the frustrations of academia, and the perspectives of an Appalachian who has traveled the world.

In Binding the God, his second collection of essays, Mann offers listeners another tour of his consciousness and experiences. This audiobook includes essays previously published in Arts and Letters, Second Person Queer, Callaloo, Now & Then, White Crane, Queer and Catholic, and other journals and anthologies.

Any additional comments?

This is a work of absolute guileless honesty. It is as if Jeff Mann has carved a window in his body to allow us to peer in and touch the essence that makes him who he is. This sort of courage and risk is what makes an artist of any medium great. The artist opens and communicates truth in both emotional and intellectual as well as poignantly personal expression. We hear, see, receive and expand our own minds, emotions and intellect in response. Thank You Jeff!
