To help launch the literary nonprofit Narrative 4, Esquire asked eighty of the world's greatest writers tochip in with a story, all with the title, "How to Be a Man." The result is The Book of Men, an unflinching investigation into the essence of manhood. The Book of Men probes, with the poignant honesty and imagination that only these writers could deliver, the slippery condition of manhood. You will find men striving and searching, learning and failing to learn, triumphing and aspiring; men who are lost and men navigating their way toward redemption. These stories don't just explore what it is to be a man, but ultimately what it is to be a human--with all of its uncertainty, complexity, clumsiness, and beauty. With contributions from literary luminaries as diverse as the subjects they capture, and curated by the editors of Esquire, National Book Award winner Colum McCann, and Narrative 4, a global nonprofit devoted to using storytelling as a means to empathy, The Book of Men might not teach you how to negotiate a deal or mix a Manhattan, but it does scratch at that most eternal of questions: What is a man? "-- Featuring contributions from James Lee Burke, Ian McEwan, Salman Rushdie and Amy Bloom, this collection, penned to help launch the literary nonprofit Narrative 4, contains 80 stories that ponder what it means to be a man. 30,000 first printing.
