No Country for Good Men

Curious Men by Rosalind Minett has a very logical subtitle He-Time Tales. Minett’s earlier work was not so gendered in the title, Me-Time Tales, but given that the earlier work was written by an author named Rosalind, some assumptions can be made. I gave the fifteen stories in Me-Time Tales five Amazon stars https://ron877.com/2019/03/07/what-is-a-well-woman-examination/ which guaranteed I would read anything else written by Ms. Minett. This collection has seventeen stories plus three interventions. I enjoy writing a quick couple of “reaction” sentences after each story. There are sections in addition to the stories. There is a tongue-in-cheek Health and Safety Warning. A Prologue admits to the author’s sense of fairness in giving men their platform and hints that men and women are different. Who would have thought it?
