Reviews

"Emotional and painful but also layered with humour, I'm Afraid of Men will widen your lens on gender and challenge you to do better. This challenge is a necessary one--one we must all take up. It is a gift to dive into Vivek's heart and mind." --Rupi Kaur, bestselling author of The Sun and Her Flowers and Milk and Honey "In I'm Afraid of Men, Vivek Shraya owns and exposes her own history with masculinity and offers a way out of this harmful and old-fashioned binary we call gender. My head nodded along quietly in agreement any time I wasn't wiping away rising tides of tears. Vivek Shraya is a superior voice, and this book is essential reading for everyone." --Tegan Quin of Tegan and Sara "Vivek Shraya's writing is always empathetic but challenging, kind but sharp, and I'm Afraid of Men forces you to confront what you think you know about masculinity, privilege, and fear. Reading Shraya's writing will make you a better person, through and through." --Scaachi Koul, author of One Day We'll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter
