No Working Title – a life in Progress is a collection of poems, writings, stories and art that deal with the not regularly discussed topic of the effects of sexual abuse and pornography on boys as they grow into men.
It is my story.
It is personal, subjective, raw and I hope an honest account. It is autobiographical in nature with the element of poetic license that all writers take – namely our view of the word and events…is just that, our view.
The aim of this work is not to bring accusation or even seek justice for what was done to me, but rather to start a conversation. To help equip people with a vocabulary they might not have, allow them to experience an emotion they might never have felt and to feel an acceptance that they have probably been looking for for a very long time
Friend, you are not alone.
This book deals with topics that are considered of a mature nature. It uses language and images that most adults would not find suitable for children.
