Boys Don't Cry by Fíona Scarlett


Set in the heart of working-class Dublin, Scarlett's probing, deeply moving dissection of toxic masculinity and the legacy of family violence finds plenty of humour amidst the struggles of its brilliantly drawn protagonists.

They say boys don't cry. But Finn's seen his Da do it when he thinks no one's looking, so that's not true.

And isn't it OK to be sad, when bad things happen? They say boys don't cry, but you might . . .
