Snips, Snails and Puppy-dogs tails?
Men are from Mars, they like Wars in the Stars, they like swords, they like beasts, they like heroes and feasts.
They like boyish jokes and murder most foul, a spy who smokes, and a Bond-villain’s scowl.
There are softer sides: the losses of War, the pain of Death, the injustice of Law.
We boys like books. But the books we like might not interest you. … yes, well enough of the rhyming perhaps, but we all know that there are things that separate boys from girls and while we’d be delighted for women to enjoy these books too, they are aimed at sport loving, laugh-seeking, spy-reading, code-cracking, politics-following, fighter-piloting, mountain-conquering, sports-car-driving and relationship-rueing BOYS. From Tom Sharpe to Nick Hornby, Hunter S Thompson to Iain Banks, there’s enough here to keep a man quiet for ages!
