SUMMARY Ñ LO-MAPS.RU ✓ David Shields REVIEW Á The Trouble with Men With Men is exuisitely balanced between the personal and the anthropological nakedness and restraint While unashamedly intellectual it’s also irresistibly readable and extremely moving Over five increasingly intimate chapters Shields probes the contours of his own psyche and marriage marshalling a chorus of other voices that leaven deepen and universalize his experience; his goal is nothing less. Fucking hell what a boring book

SUMMARY Ñ LO-MAPS.RU ✓ David Shields REVIEW Á The Trouble with Men Than a deconstruction of  eros and conventional masculinity Masterfully woven throughout is an unmistakable and surprisingly tender  cri de coeur to his wife The risk and vulnerability on display are in the service of radical candor acerbic wit real emotion and profound insight exactly what we’ve come to expect from Shields who in an open invitation to the reader leaves everything on the pag. An interesting possibly vital examination of human sexuality that includes much of the stuff that we like hearing the least Especially the parts about ineuality and domination It s also not actually about men but women too and how we seem to know so little about the most compelling thing in our lives I often wonder if this fog of war will ever be lifted or if we prefer to muddle like dissatisfied children forever The other surprise is the artsy collage of sources It s a bit like a broken term paper But very enjoyable though I m still after answers I don t know why men seek bjs and golf It also might be the most mature document ever prepared about love
