Tear His Head Off His Shoulders is a novel written by Nell Dunn, published in 1974.
It tells the story of Jeanette, who has just turned fifty and is still haunted by memories of a failed love affair, when she previously lived in London. She moves from her present home in the country back to London, where she meets up with Queenie, a former prostitute who has also just turned fifty.
Queenie engages Jeanette with tales of her own 'salty reminiscences' which are juxtaposed with her own broken memories.
