BATTY BWOY Book Signing & Discussion

Wed., Sept. 2, 6-8 p.m.
phone 305-499-0773
maxarthurmantle@yahoo.com

The coming of age story of Mark Palmer, a black, gay, Jamaican where “Boom bye bye inna batty bwoy head” (Gunshot to gay men) has replaced the island’s motto “Out of many one people.” The son of an overbearing, absentee, neglectful mother, he is thrust in an environment that requires a thick skin from torments and socio-economic disparities. Suppressing his “gay tendencies” to detract being bashed or murdered, he migrates to America, comes out and feels marginalized. As his life spirals from bad choices, he clings to desperate measures and finds hope. Free
