Männer weinen nicht. Sollten sie aber, denn sie haben allen Grund dazu: Starre Männlichkeitsbilder beherrschen noch immer die Identifikationsangebote – sei es in Erziehung, Beruf, Werbung oder Mainstream-Medien. Stark, unbesiegbar, wild und immer auf der Gewinnerspur sollen Männer sein, ob sie wollen oder nicht. Jack Urwin hat genug davon. Es reicht ihm nicht, dass der starke Mann heute auch mal weinen oder Elternzeit nehmen darf, sondern er fragt, warum Männer überhaupt stark sein müssen. Warum messen wir Menschen noch immer an Stereotypen, wo es uns ohne doch viel besser ginge? Dieses Buch ist der Beginn einer längst überfälligen Debatte darüber, wie eine positive, moderne Männlichkeit aussehen kann und wie wir dahin gelangen können, sie zu leben. Unter anderem ausgelöst vom frühen Tod seines Vaters hat Jack Urwin 2014 den weltweit viel beachteten Essay »A Stiff Upper Lip Is Killing British Men« im VICE Magazine veröffentlicht, dessen emen er hier fortführt. Von der Mob-Mentalität, wie sie bei Fußballspielen und in Fight Club zur Schau gestellt wird, bis zu unseren Großvätern, die aus dem Zweiten Weltkrieg zurückkehrten, ohne je gelernt zu haben, über ihre Gefühle zu sprechen, untersucht Urwin, wie der Mythos der Maskulinität entstanden ist und warum er toxisch, ja tödlich ist. Warum tun wir uns trotzdem so schwer damit, diese fragwürdigen Ideale hinter uns zu lassen? Teils Essay, teils persönliches Manifest, ist Boys don't cry eine witzige und scharfe Auseinandersetzung mit toxischer Maskulinität und ihren Folgen – und ein Plädoyer für einen anderen Umgang miteinander.

Every man had a dream of the kind of man they would one day become. Have you become this man? Have you ever asked another man whether hes become who he always wanted to be? Im surprised to find that for so many men their earliest dreams for themselves are just a hope for the future. This book is for men, and for everyone who cares about them. We give up our dreams too easily. Our personal growth stops. What we dont know is that were missing the connection of full emotional intimacy. Many of us havent been taught how to create that emotional intimacy and how to distinguish it from sexual intimacy. Without emotional intimacy and joy, men arent fully alive. What a tragedy that so many men are missing so much. The hope that motivated this book is that someday, all men will be able to reconnect with lasting intimacy and joy that they can have with others, by reconnecting with the man they always wanted to be. The vision is that someday our boys will grow into the men they want to be, living out the deepest longings of their hearts. It is my hope that this book will bring you or those around you closer to being the man you always dreamed of becoming.

Why I hid my depression and why men need to talk about their mental health

Meet Tim. For nearly a decade Tim kept his depression secret. It made him feel so weak and shameful he thought it would destroy his whole life if anyone found out. But an unexpected discovery by a loved one forced him to confront his illness and realise there was strength to be found in sharing his story with others. When he finally opened up to the world about what he was going through he discovered he was not alone. Boys Don't Cry is a book that speaks against the stigma that makes men feel like they are less-than for struggling, making sense of depression and anxiety for people who might not recognise those feelings in themselves or others. It is a brutally honest, sometimes heart-breaking (and sometimes funny) tale about what it really takes to be a 'real man', written by one who decided that he wanted to change the status quo by no longer being silent. This is Tim's story, but it could be yours too.

Sebastian Palfrey, a British newspaper correspondent, is a lifelong friend of Josh's, and is immediately hauled in by the local police.

But Sebastian genuinely doesn't know where Josh is, and nor does his girlfriend, Frances. Sebastian both knows and fears that his disappearance can only throw up all sorts of secrets they've shared - and some they haven't - that have long been buried . . . Acclaim for This Green Land 'It is Fullerton's piece of genre fiction that gets closest to the heart of this difficult subject matter . . . a shockingly good read' The Times ' . . .

Rethinking Narratives of Masculinity and Emotion in the U.S.

We take for granted the idea that white, middle-class, straight masculinity connotes total control of emotions, emotional inexpressivity, and emotional isolation. That men repress their feelings as they seek their fortunes in the competitive worlds of business and politics seems to be a given. This collection of essays by prominent literary and cultural critics rethinks such commonly held views by addressing the history and politics of emotion in prevailing narratives about masculinity. How did the story of the emotionally stifled U.S. male come into being? What are its political stakes? Will the "release" of straight, white, middle-class masculine emotion remake existing forms of power or reinforce them? This collection forcefully challenges our most entrenched ideas about male emotion. Through readings of works by Thoreau, Lowell, and W. E. B. Du Bois, and of twentieth century authors such as Hemingway and Kerouac, this book questions the persistence of the emotionally alienated male in narratives of white middle-class masculinity and addresses the political and social implications of male emotional release.

Im November 1959 wird in Holcomb, Kansas, die vierköpfige Familie Clutter brutal ermordet. Wenige Wochen später werden die Täter Dick Hickock und Perry Smith auf der Flucht geschnappt. Truman Capote erfährt aus der New York Times von dem Verbrechen und beschließt, am Tatort zu recherchieren. Er spricht mit Bekannten und Freunden der Familie, mit der Polizei. Schließlich erhält er Gelegenheit, mit den beiden Mördern zu reden. Mit der Zeit gelingt es ihm, so viel Nähe zu ihnen herzustellen, dass sie ihm präzise Innenansichten ihrer Seele erlauben. Fast sechs Jahre nach ihrer Tat begleitet er sie bis an den Galgen. Capotes herausragende Rekonstruktion eines Mordes wurde eine Sensation und begründete ein neues literarisches Genre: die "non-fiction novel", den Tatsachenroman. In einer atemberaubenden Sprache erzählt er, wie aus Menschen Mörder werden. Mit Kaltblütig landete Capote einen internationalen Bestseller.
