Black Boy Sheep by Martin Pousson
A young boy in the Louisiana bayou is different than all of the men in his life: small, weak, effeminate. Through his eyes we see everything, from the mundane to the fantastical, the intricacies of Cajun life on the bayou, the trappings of masculinity, and the consequences for not adhering to those strict customs.
Black Sheep Boy is a beautifully wrought collection of interlinking stories, told with passion and compassion. Martin Poussson knows this world and it shows.
