fine writing by lesbians and gay men since 1999
an adventure novel
Frank is a jailbird, a drug trafficker who sells his body to men and women, who has a great dealing going for him in the way of looks and charm and is the most dangerous of the three conmen Jacob encounters.
"If Somerset Maugham had got gritty and worked on a ship today, he could have written something with this panache and gutsiness. Nailing Frank is Paul Mann's best book yet: tightly plotted and witty. Jacob, the fictional purser-narrator, merits a movie to star in."
Dr Jo Stanley, Institute for Cultural Research at Lancaster University and author of Hello Sailor, the hidden history of gay life at sea

Paul Mann now lives in Greater Manchester with a German Shepherd. He is a member of 42 Commando Association because despite being an anti establishment, anti royalist, queer vegetarian pacifist who loathes blind discipline, pomp and compulsory sport, he served by mistake in the Third Commando Brigade and enjoyed almost all of his time there.
