Self-made Man : My Year Disguised as a Man, Paperback

Self-made Man : My Year Disguised as a Man Paperback

1 out of 5 (1 rating)


Norah Vincent's witty and compulsively readable memoir tells how she dated women, joined a bowling league, visited strip bars, retreated to a monastery, got a job in sales and even infiltrated a men's therapy group.

Norah did not predict how crucial the relationships Ned forged would be and how the burden of being an impostor would became almost too much to bear.

The result is a constantly surprising and humane account of what it is to be a man - and a woman - in the modern world.

Review by

I'm sorry to say I barely made it past the end of the first chapter of this. It was expecting something more humourous, witty and self-deprecating and this failed on all levels. I really didn't like the authors writing style and so this definitely wasn't for me.
