The first novel by George K. Ilsley, whose first story collection, Random Acts of Hatred, was published to acclaim in 2004. Told in dream-like fragments, ManBugunfolds as a love story between Sebastian, an entomologist with Asperger's Syndrome, and Tom, a spiritual bisexual who may or may not be recruiting Sebastian for a cult. They navigate their relationship as damaged goods, seeking meaning and value in themselves through the other; they also try to avoid the inevitable toxins around them, both real and imagined-like bugs avoiding insecticide-while asking the question, Just how much poison can any of us absorb? ManBugis a beguiling, tragicomic novel about beauty, horror, desire, and what lurks just beneath the skin.
