Reviews

One of the most interesting, restless writers of his generation * Daily Mail *
In his varied, and often satirical, takes on an alternative English history, steeped in the mythic, folkloric and grotesque, Myers taps into a rich vein of Yorkshire gothic, both menacing and comically absurd, its register set somewhere between Ted Hughes, Emily Bronte and The League of Gentleman. The stories resonate most when his dark humour and lyricism combined * Times Literary Supplement *
Impressive ... Myers' compassionate and tender approach to his characters makes even the most flawed of them worthy of empathy * New Statesman *
Richly distinctive stories, with unnerving, dark plotlines ... Bleakly funny * Independent *
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's multifaceted short stories grapple with the nature of masculinity * Observer *
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
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
