Synopsis: Michael Messner, already known for his nuanced explorations of masculinities in sport, here humanely explores the evolving, often confusing dynamics of masculinities between three generations of boys and men. This candid memoir will make engrossing reading for both seasoned scholars and newcomers to gender studies. Cynthia Enloe, author of Nimo's War, Emma's War: Making Feminist Sense of the Iraq War

For decades, feminist scholars, memoirists, and novelists have explored the lineaments of mother-daughter relationships, yet the world of fathers and sons has garnered relatively little attention. In his closely observed memoir, King of the Wild Suburb, noted Gender Studies scholar Michael Messner opens up the affective terrain between fathers and sons, and in the process deepens and complicates our understanding of masculinity.

Alice Echols, author of Hot Stuff: Disco and the Remaking of American Culture

Michael Messner's reflections on coming of age in the pivotal Sixties deftly captures the fault lines that separated so many young men and women from the lives of their parents and grandparents. It was, perhaps, easier for young women to rebel and choose careers over homemaking than it was for young men to opt out of a culture that made war, guns, and hunting the anchors of manhood. King of the Wild Suburb helps us understand how masculinity has changed, albeit still precariously, making it possible to maintain a fidelity to one's past while passing on to the next generation a freedom to explore new ways to be a man.

Jan E. Dizard, author of Mortal Stakes: Hunters and Hunting in Contemporary America

About the Author: Michael A. Messner was born in Salinas, California, and educated from kindergarten to Ph.D. in California's once-great public schools. He lives in South Pasadena with sociologist and author Pierrette Hondagneu-Sotelo, and they have two sons, Miles and Sasha. Since 1987 Messner has worked as a professor of sociology and gender studies at the University of Southern California. The author of several books, he teaches and speaks publicly on issues of gender-based violence, the lives of men and boys, and gender and sports. Plain View Press has released his new book, King of the Wild Suburb: A Memoir of Fathers, Sons and Guns.
