Self-Made Man

My Year Disguised as a Man

«This captivating account will forever change the way you see men - and perhaps yourself»

Marie Claire

Norah Vincent became an instant media sensation with the publication of Self-Made Man, her take on just how hard it is to be a man, even in a man's world. Vincent spent a year and a half disguised as her male alter ego, Ned, exploring what men are like when women aren't around.

As Ned, she joined a bowling team, took a high-octane sales job, went on dates with women (and men), visited strip clubs, and even managed to infiltrate a monastery and a men's therapy group. At once thought-provoking and pure fun to read, Self-Made Man is a sympathetic and thrilling tour de force of immersion journalism.

Medlemmers vurdering

N
Nostalgia – 08.11.2006

– Norah, en lesbe fra New York bestemmer seg for å finne ut av mannsmytene og går "undercover" som mann i over et år. Hun kler seg ut som mann og blir "Ned" for å gli inn i rollen og snoke rundt og finne ut av menns virkelige følelsesliv. Hun infiltrerer alt fra en bowlingklubb til et kloster. Hun går på stevnemøter og prøver seg i arbeidslivet som mann. Dette var både en artig og trist bok på mange måter. Til tider veldig underholdende, spesielt da hun ga seg ut for å være munk. Til tider litt langdryg. Men en helt grei bok, som setter et interessant og annerledes søkelys på deler av menns verden.
