About this title:

Synopsis: The coming of age story of Mark Palmer, a black, gay, Jamaican where “Boom bye bye inna batty bwoy head” (meaning, gunshot to gay men) has replaced the island’s motto “Out of many one people.” The son of an overbearing 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 and breaks free from the closet to a world where he is marginalized. As his life spirals from bad choices, he clings to desperate measures and finds hope.

From the Back Cover: "BATTY BWOY is a brilliant and bold debut novel from Max-Arthur Mantle about the evolution of an awkward and impressionable boy into a decidedly fierce and unapologetically gay black man. Mantle keenly illustrates the suffocating prejudiced mores of a country confined in its conventionally held beliefs. He breathes life into characters that are humorous, sad, intriguing, and interestingly familiar. We are at once drawn into the life and experiences; pain and joy; struggles and triumphs of the protagonist from his home in Jamaica to his exploits in America. The author has successfully constructed a piece of literature that is socially significant, politically poignant and all the while entertaining."

DR. SAFIYA D. HOSKINS, contributor, Harvard University's African American National Biography, edited by Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
