As you’d expect with Grayson Perry, there’s also some powerful art in this book.

Do we fall prey to the dictats of “The Department of Masculinity”?

Are men really equipping themselves for a world of peace as opposed to a world of war?

Perry tells how in his youth he “numbed” himself to his emotions.

He shows the cost of this veneer of reason

It’s a message which sits well for me with the idea of “Strong Front” in The Power of Soft.

Powerful, thought provoking stuff.
