    Ebook Men PDF EPUB ´ Men EpubOn a process level Men Notes from an Ongoing Investigation is a successful essay collection Kipnis is a fluid writer with an eye for the mot juste; she varies her sentence structures with grace; nothing she writes ever feels forced If that sounds like faint praise it’s because alas I have a lot of problems with the sentiments Kipnis expresses in her eleg

    Ebook Men PDF EPUB ´ Men EpubThe title of this collection almost belies the wide range of topics Kipnis covers across 14 essays The cover is kitschy but the essays are deft especially The Lothario Gropers The Manly Man and Men Who Hate Hillary I appreciate Kipnis' fearlessness in skewering the men she covers while simultaneously poking fun at herself In fact some of the

    Ebook Men PDF EPUB ´ Men EpubI have never read Pride Prejudice but I picked up the basics of its plot uickly If you’ve never experienced it but have lived through a few years of American cultural productions it has seeped into you as well It was the radioactive spider bite that spawned an entire genre the gamma ray burst that even now continues to produce the next thousand years of romantic comedies You'll recognize the zippy dialogue you'll know the “will theywon’t they” plotline the dramatic irony Or perhaps if you are someone intimately familiar with the story you are right now yelling at your screen that I am dumb; that while it is clearly a comedy it is not the Ur romantic comedy You may continue to say perhaps that the inherent class divide between Elizabeth and Darcy reuired too much personal growth from both of them before they were read

    Ebook Men PDF EPUB ´ Men EpubIn her essays the author takes a look at men from the perspective of exposing certain negative traits and then finding some value in those faults not that she doesn't find many of the traits problematic in relationships between women and men For example she finds Larry Flynt the publisher of Hustler to be a smut peddler and Scumbag yet she finds some redeeming value in him because of his genuine support for the first amendment and other seemingly uncharacteristic acts of compassion She uses an old B movie to illustrate the flaws in a highly educated woman Psychiatrist who is taken by a con man who has street smarts versus her academic prowess; he is better at analyzing people than her and that's her area of expertise She

    Ebook Men PDF EPUB ´ Men EpubI expected from this book dissection of men and lightheartedness The cover and title created that expectation instead I got essays that are almost incidentally about men which probably made it a stronger book The essays are well thought out and well written And although they aren't strictly speaking humor writing they do exude a certain flipness which at times is funny I didn't like this book well enough to look up the author's other books but based on her writing I don't know if that's entirely fair I would like to know about her views on feminism gender theory and politics because the glimpses she allowed of herself made her seem like a very interesting person There just weren't enough of them for my taste

    Ebook Men PDF EPUB ´ Men EpubLaura Kipnis is one of those university professors whose lives I envy living in New York going to cocktail parties with other intellectuals and engaging in witty banter This book is largely about the kind of men you'd find at such parties literary critics political pundits other academics The exceptions are the first essay about Larry Flynt and the last about Andrea Dworkin So if you're looking for thoughts about your average man on the bus or the local hipster bar or anyone a non academic with a subscription to the New York Times might know you're out of luck Still an engaging read if not completely relevant to me
