What does it mean to be a 'real man'? This study explores the depiction of male shame in the novels of Hanif Kureishi, Philip Roth and Hubert Klimko-Dobrzaniecki. Drawing on postcolonial, gender and feminist studies of shame, the authors exposes the damaging nature of the denial of male emotions and the effect it has on society.
