My Private Pectus

My Private Pectus

by Shane Thamm

‘There’s something different about my body. It’s like the missing piece of a jigsaw you can’t take your eyes off. If I were to take off my shirt you wouldn’t see my face, freckles or ratty hair. All you’d see is the hole in the middle of my chest.
A story about footy, cars, and a young man who discovers that revealing his greatest secret is the only way to hold on to the people he loves.

About This Author

Shane Thamm wrote My Private Pectus while studying masculinities at Queensland University of Technology. After six years working in high school outdoor education, and the masculinised outdoor adventure industry, he became intimately interested in what makes young men tick, and the emotional challenges they negotiate each day, often in silence. He likes to give these boys a voice.
