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.
