Part memoir, part dismantling of the perceived fixed ideas on identity and sexuality, ‘Bent’ is based on the author's own experiences of sexuality and manhood. I really enjoyed the author’s honest and witty writing style, and found it very easy to become immersed in tales. 

Using lived experience to explore issues around labels and preconceptions. I think that this book brilliantly gets across the message that the connection to another person is the important part of any relationship. I also loved that he takes the opportunity to discuss consent and how to work through this topic with a teenager. 

I read this book in one sitting. Vibrant, educational and thought provoking, this is a brilliant book for expanding your horizons and perhaps reframing how you look at the world. I would heartily recommend this book to nonfiction and fiction fans alike, if you are looking for a deeply personal narrative with moments to pause and reflect.

I enjoyed Adam’s straight forward and unapologetic approach when it came to his examination of his own sexuality, something which many may frown upon these days, but I found quite refreshing.

Bent: Sexuality, Manhood & Other Stories is a very well-written and engaging commentary on masculinity, sexuality and gender.  I enjoyed Adam’s straight forward and unapologetic approach when it came to his examination of his own sexuality, something which many may frown upon these days, but I found quite refreshing.  I think it is well worth a read for anyone interested in these topics and I would thoroughly recommend it.
