Male Tears Synopsis

'One of the most singular, moving and crucial voices of our times' David Peace

In Male Tears, a debut collection of stories that brings together over fifteen years of work, Benjamin Myers lays bare the male psyche in all its fragility, complexity and failure, its hubris and forbidden tenderness. Farmers, fairground workers and wandering pilgrims, gruesome gamekeepers, bare-knuckle boxers and ex-cons with secret passions, the men that populate these unsettling, wild and wistful stories form a multi-faceted, era-spanning portrait of just what it means to be a man.

Benjamin Myers Press Reviews

Moving fast and deadly, the stories in Male Tears carry us from bleak farms to lonely reservoirs and snowbound woods. Benjamin Myers writes sentences with a charging pulse and the account they give of masculinity is a bloody one, stripped of romance and larded with wit -- Chris Power

Benjamin Myers' stories in Male Tears cut right to the heart of the matter. This is fiction to be taken in gulps of pleasure - full of fire and light, wisdom and violence -- Rob Doyle

One of the most interesting, restless writers of his generation - Daily Mail

A powerful new voice - The Times

Myers is the master of rural English noir -- Paul Kingsnorth

One of the most singular, moving and crucial voices of our times -- David Peace

Powerful, visceral writing -- Pat Barker -
