About this title


These Stories are based on autobiographical narratives from the authors own subjective experiences or on their interpretations of the stories told b others. Many of the letters are ex-athletes, able-bodied men. The most striking link between the narratives is a change in the masculine body and identity. The deepest change occurs when a familiar body becomes harmful, disruptive, alien, or even anguish. This book representrs an interesting and fresh avenue in the 'city' of gender studies. This book is recommended for students and teachers in social sciences.
