“Two Syllable Men”

a short story collection by John McCaffrey

Publisher: Vine Leaves Press (

Release Date:  April 2016


“I want to see the thirst
inside the syllables
I want to touch the fire
in the sound:
I want to feel the darkness
of the cry. I want
words as rough
as virgin rocks.”
― Pablo Neruda

John McCaffrey’s “Two Syllable Men” presents 12 not-so-angry men, characters who are struggling to find happiness, or at least stability, in their lives after painful breakups and loss. These are guys who still have fight left in them, who do not want to be alone, but who are learning that often the best way to become whole again is to look inward, not outward, for love. Written in a concise, athletic prose, Two Syllable Men gives voice to the often-suppressed voices of men in trouble.
