At least they do in their literatature according to this article from the Sydney Morning Herald.

One of the authors’ findings is that men in their “middle years” don’t read much fiction. I can say as I’ve (ahem) “matured”, I’ve moved away from fiction. Part of my reason for doing so is my belief in the old adage about the truth being stranger than fiction. I enjoy stories where seemingly inconsequential events have major impact and I think the large, shared context non-fiction often gets to build on gives the impact more heft.
