Abstract (summary)

This collection examines the often-hidden emotions of men, the frequently tenuous relationship between fathers and sons, and the way men act when they aren't the way society wants them to be. Brothers, both adopted, face the prospect of being fathers themselves; a lonely man finds connection through violence; a best friend wonders how far he can go to repay his indebtedness; a giant seeks to find what makes him feel small; a father considers the gravity of his betrayal as he looks back on the mistakes of his own dad; and a man looks back on a night decades earlier that exemplified the helplessness he feels. Amidst all of these stories are narratives about how men live in a world of expectations, where acknowledging the depth of their souls often is seen as a weakness instead of strength.
