    Benjamin Myers is one of the very best writers around, so I eagerly pre-ordered his new book, a shorty story collection spanning 15 years of writing, and all loosely based on what it means to be a man and examining the male psyche. All bar one of these stories was new to me (the exception is The Whip Hand which I have a lovely limited edition chap book of). My favourites of the collection were probably The Folk Song Singer, the aforementioned The Whip Hand, and the disturbing Bomber. An excellent short story collection from one of the most talented writers of today.
