A Better Man
&“Raw, intimate, and true . . . A Better Man cracked me wide open, and it&’s a template for the conversation we need to be having with our boys.&” —Peggy Orenstein, bestselling author of Boys & Sex A poignant look at boyhood, in the form of a heartfelt letter from comedian Michael Ian Black to his teenage son before he leaves for college, and a radical plea for rethinking masculinity and teaching young men to give and receive love. In a world in which the word masculinity now often goes hand in hand with toxic, comedian, actor, and father Michael Ian Black offers up a way forward for boys, men, and anyone who loves them. Part memoir, part advice book, and written as a heartfelt letter to his college-bound son, A Better Man reveals Black&’s own complicated relationship with his father, explores the damage and rising violence caused by the expectations placed on boys to &“man up,&” and searches for the best way to help young men be part of the solution, not the problem. &“If we cannot allow ourselves vulnerability,&” he writes, &“how are we supposed to experience wonder, fear, tenderness?&” Honest, funny, and hopeful, Black skillfully navigates the complex gender issues of our time and delivers a poignant answer to an urgent question: How can we be, and raise, better men?
