'If God is too indifferent, or too non-existent to take care of His creation, then clearly it's up to Me.'Morgen Tanjenz is a lawyer with an overactive sense of justice. His mission in life is to reward the virtuous, punish the ignorant and avenge those who won't avenge themselves. His favourite pastime is 'life sculpture' - anonymously intervening in the lives of strangers to change their destiny in ways he thinks they deserve.But Morgen isn't the only one changing lives in the city. A serial killer is on the prowl and taunting the police in letters to the local rag. But, as the body count rises, Detective Sergeant Blacksnake Fowler can hardly focus on the job with so many distractions: his boss hates him, his deputy is trying to undermine him and the woman he loves is having an affair.In the cicada-throbbing heat of a Sydney summer, the threads of a strange story become entangled in a wild conclusion no one will see coming. 'a ripsnorter of a ride through the dark heart of the burbs... may just be Australia's answer to American Psycho.' Kirsten Krauth, just_a_girl 'Sometimes funny, sometimes disturbing, and always compelling... with a super-original premise and a one-of-a-kind protagonist'. Tony Wilson, Making News 'A disturbingly good read. Unnerving and darkly comic.' Stuart Quin, Ealing Studios Australia

The poems of Straight Jacket gather bravely at the intersection between LGBTQ identity and the politics of illness, speaking to the consequences of homophobia and social injustice, entering into the horrors of commitment, and doing fierce linguistic battle with the language of mental illness and stigma.

When Gilles and Esther decided to move from Montréal to Vancouver, they didn't expect their lives to change so starkly. All they wanted was to start a new life for themselves, to find new artistic opportunities. But their new home proves to be a challenging culture shock as the young couple struggles to connect to others, navigate their language barrier, and cope with non-stop rain. These blocks become walls, cutting Gilles and Esther off from the world, and with cabin fever comes erratic behaviour. They find themselves being torn apart, divided by their yearning to go back to their old life and the desire to stay. But how long can two people be everything for each other before they lose themselves completely?

Straight Jacket is a revolutionary clarion call for gay men, the wider LGBT community, their friends and family. Part memoir, part ground-breaking polemic, it looks beneath the shiny facade of contemporary gay culture and asks if gay people are as happy as they could be--and if not, why not? Meticulously researched, courageous and life-affirming, Straight Jacket offers invaluable practical advice on how to overcome a range of difficult issues. It also recognizes that this is a watershed moment, a piercing wake-up-call-to-arms for the gay and wider community to acknowledge the importance of supporting all young people--and helping older people to transform their experience and finally get the lives they really want.

The book contains sixteen sermons from the book of Job. I take something as horrible as Jobs condition, and I compare it with something as totally constraining as a straitjacket. The book traces Job through the many seasons of his situation and will help people realize that, while they may indeed have some extremely difficult times, they too can find some hope and solace with God, as did Job.

Männer weinen nicht. Sollten sie aber, denn sie haben allen Grund dazu: Starre Männlichkeitsbilder beherrschen noch immer die Identifikationsangebote – sei es in Erziehung, Beruf, Werbung oder Mainstream-Medien. Stark, unbesiegbar, wild und immer auf der Gewinnerspur sollen Männer sein, ob sie wollen oder nicht. Jack Urwin hat genug davon. Es reicht ihm nicht, dass der starke Mann heute auch mal weinen oder Elternzeit nehmen darf, sondern er fragt, warum Männer überhaupt stark sein müssen. Warum messen wir Menschen noch immer an Stereotypen, wo es uns ohne doch viel besser ginge? Dieses Buch ist der Beginn einer längst überfälligen Debatte darüber, wie eine positive, moderne Männlichkeit aussehen kann und wie wir dahin gelangen können, sie zu leben. Unter anderem ausgelöst vom frühen Tod seines Vaters hat Jack Urwin 2014 den weltweit viel beachteten Essay »A Stiff Upper Lip Is Killing British Men« im VICE Magazine veröffentlicht, dessen emen er hier fortführt. Von der Mob-Mentalität, wie sie bei Fußballspielen und in Fight Club zur Schau gestellt wird, bis zu unseren Großvätern, die aus dem Zweiten Weltkrieg zurückkehrten, ohne je gelernt zu haben, über ihre Gefühle zu sprechen, untersucht Urwin, wie der Mythos der Maskulinität entstanden ist und warum er toxisch, ja tödlich ist. Warum tun wir uns trotzdem so schwer damit, diese fragwürdigen Ideale hinter uns zu lassen? Teils Essay, teils persönliches Manifest, ist Boys don't cry eine witzige und scharfe Auseinandersetzung mit toxischer Maskulinität und ihren Folgen – und ein Plädoyer für einen anderen Umgang miteinander.

Have you ever wondered what a real relationship looks like? Most people search the globe looking for someone they are compatible with. At the risk of finding love, some people are willing to endure physical and verbal abuse just to keep the relationship together. At what point do you re-evaluate the relationship? Physical abuse is the act of a person harming someone else. However, most people believe that it is a sign of true love. An abusive relationship is just like being a patient committed to an institution, wearing a straight jacket. In this straight jacket, the arms are tied behind the back with no way for a person to harm themselves. In other words, you are bound and cannot get out. This book is a personal testimony of a relationship that felt like a straight jacket. Although the relationship should have ended, there was something that kept us coming back to each other. My Straight Jacket chronicles a relationship that was riddled with a roller coaster of emotions. The question is, how do you become released and unbound from an abusive relationship?
