Being a man, right now, is not only tricky but curious. In fact, men seem to be in the midst of a 21st century quandary regarding identity – too hard; too soft. Too emotional; too far removed from feelings.
An acerbic and extremely honest portrait of contemporary masculinity –
Male Order lands at just the right time. Linking acute insights and engaging observations to a wealth of the writer’s own experience (and stupidity),
this is an exploration of modern man, and a guide on life, like no other.
While chapter headings such as ‘How Not To Be A Dick’ and ‘How To Accept You Will Likely Not Change The World Or Sleep With A Supermodel Or Be Friends With George Clooney' set a certain tone, more serious excursions are built around sex, drugs, feminism, fatherhood – and the very real need for men to emote and talk more freely and honestly.
