The Nature of Imperfection is a short book of poetry like no other. Each poem is a strikingly honest response to the confusion, alienation and even self-loathing experienced at different times during the poet's life. The poems communicate, simply, the profound feeling of what it is like to daily face life inside a body that does not match the natural thoughts and feelings generated by the mind. It deals, too, with the thorny issue of sexuality and the prejudicial pigeonholing and imprecise labelling of people who do not fit easily into the categories with which mainstream society feels most comfortable. The Nature of Imperfection is a 'must-read' for anybody wanting to better understand some of the fundamental issues surrounding the inescapable and incurable feeling that one's emotional and psychological identity is opposite to one's biological sex.
