The Descent of Man by Grayson Perry (Paperback, 2017)

The Descent of Man by Grayson Perry (Paperback, 2017) 'A breeze of a read makes you see our male-manufactured world a little differently' Matt Haig'GRAYSON PERRY FOR KING AND QUEEN OF ENGLAND Imagine how BRILLIANT our country would look if he was' Caitlin MoranGrayson Perry has been thinking about masculinity - what it is how it operates why little boys are thought to be made of slugs and snails - since he was a boy Now in this funny and necessary book he turns round to look at men with a clear eye and ask what sort of men would make the world a better place for everyone?What would happen if we rethought the old macho outdated version of manhood and embraced a different idea of what makes a man? Apart from giving up the coronary-inducing stress of always being 'right' and the vast new wardrobe options the real benefit might be that a newly fitted masculinity will allow men to have better relationships - and that's happiness right?Grayson Perry admits he's not immune from the stereotypes himself - as the psychoanalysts say 'if you spot it you've got it' - and his thoughts on everything from power to physical appearance from emotions to a brand new Manifesto for Men are shot through with honesty tenderness and the belief that for everyone to benefit upgrading masculinity has to be something men decide to do themselves They have nothing to lose but their hang-ups
