This is a strange, dreamlike novel about male desire, spiritual longing and insects...The first novel by George K. Ilsley, whose first story collection, "Random Acts of Hatred", was published to great acclaim in 2004. Told in dreamlike fragments, "Manbug" unfolds 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 explore the world through their relationship, 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?
