Guyland: The Perilous World Where Boys Become Men on 11/11

Melville Library Author Series: Guyland: The Perilous World Where Boys Become Men featuring Michael Kimmel, Professor of Sociology.

To a growing list of books about the myths and mysteries of American boys and young males, Michael Kimmel, Professor of Sociology, adds this deft exploration grounded in research. Published by HarperCollins, Guyland is based on more than 400 interviews over a four-year span with young men, ages 16–26. “Michael Kimmel’s Guyland could save the humanity of many young men—and the sanity of their friends and parents—by explaining the forces behind a newly extended adolescence. With accuracy and empathy, he names the problem and offers compassionate bridges to adulthood.”- Gloria Steinem
