What do vampires have in common with mannequins? They’re both amongst the many things Benton Hartley is afraid of. When he’s tasked by his therapist to list everything that scares him, he quickly realises that the problem might be much deeper than he thought. Darkly hilarious and unblinkingly vulnerable, Cowardice tells the story of one man’s history with hospitals, panic attacks and the great american sitcom.
