What People are saying about this

Robin Behn
“From Korea to Manhattan, and from the haunted voices still rising from the concentration camps, Richard Jeffrey Newman’s The Silence of Men exposes the violence of men toward men, and men toward women, and the tenderness also, the resounding tenderness. His is an unremitting empathy, as uncommon as it is necessary. Such a brave debut.”
