9781940122274: Delicate Men: Stories

The stories in Delicate Men explore the socialization and cultural norms men and boys in contemporary society face and what happens when an individual fails to live up to those expectations. And though these are individual lives and stories, a strong, common thread unites them all in their frustration, sometimes even guilt, for not being the men they think they are supposed to be

From the Back Cover:

"What's so compelling about R Dean Johnson's Delicate Men is the startling revelation that the anxieties and insecurities of our youth--the ones we are certain we will outgrow--actually haunt us into maturity. Johnson seeks out the pressure points in a range of masculine narratives and shapes a complex portrait of male identity, in which vulnerability begets strength, where desire never gets less awkward, and adults still stand foolishly by playground rules: 'It's a boy's game, but you have to be a man to play it.' Sensitively rendered, Delicate Men is honest and poignant storytelling."
        --Rigoberto González, author of Autobiography of My Hungers
