Twenty-five years ago, Laurence Dillon received an unpleasant surprise - he was diagnosed with malignancy and had his testicles removed.
Life wasn't quite the same after. Unsung Love Song is his quest to understand the anguish of the emasculated man: a compilation of the fractured tales of lives lived and unlived by men in a similar situation.
It is unlike anything you've ever read before: wistful memoir meets emotional travelogue: an urban psychogeography field trip without a map that wanders through rarely visited neighbourhoods of eroticism, masculine identity, and darker aspects of the soul.
It is a chaotic scrapbook containing a multitude of forgotten cuttings and seemingly banal souvenirs, carefully collected from many sources over the course of a life.
The result is a very unique sort of 'coming-out'. Unsung Love Song is a collection of curious exhibits in a secret gallery.
Its reflections, revelations and remembrances have been laid out with great care and dignity for just one visitor - You.
