Childhood sexual abuse is not a topic that men have felt comfortable talking about, even though as many as 20 percent of boys may be victims. After all men should be strong. Little boys should be able to defend themselves. Any maybe men who talk about what happened to them at the hands of a mother, a father, a relative, camp counselor, neighbor or trusted adult might be blamed, ignored or called deviant. So male survivors usually have kept quiet, often compounding the lifelong effects of abuse. In Cabin Six is a powerful collection of poems written by adult male survivors of sexual abuse. Poems explore survivors' relationships with men and women, their sexuality and sexual feelings, loss of childhood, numbing, self-image and esteem, trust, recovery, anger, therapy, blame, betrayal, ending the silence, confronting the abuser, being believed, remembering and parenting. The cover photo was provided by one of the contributors. It was taken of him at camp, In Cabin Six, by the counselor who molested him. The book breaks the silence and opens dialog for those reading it.


Excerpt

Important poetry-poetry that makes a difference-often seems to be a distillate of experience that leads the reader to deeper understanding. In Cabin Six presentss the concentrated life experience of brave men who are actively engaged in recovery. Their poems are not pretty; but contain the profound, lasting beauty of truth, honesty and courage. Readers who add their attention and feelings to these bouillon cubes of hard reality; struggle and transcendence, will share a powerful experience.----Mike
Lew, author of Victims No Longer and Leaping on the Mountains: Men Proclaiming
Victory Over Sexual Child Abuse.
