This week’s episode is a meditation on sexuality, mental health and abusive relationships. In this probing and intimate book that combines memoir with social history, Michael Handrick unpicks the narratives and societal expectations of what it means to be a man, working class and gay.
Beautifully written and unflinchingly honest, Difference is Born on the Lips is published by Flint Books and available now.
This podcast is edited and produced by Megan Bay Dorman, and programmed by Matt Casbourne.
