Boyhood, Growing Up Male, Second Edition
A Multicultural Anthology
With a new Foreword by Michael S. Camel
"[Boyhood] will move you with the richness and the diversity of the human experience."—Seattle Men
By turns touching, funny, poignant, and painful, Boyhood chronicles the road to manhood through the personal narratives and poems of accomplished writers from around the world. Contributors include Shepherd Bliss, Robert Bly, Edward Field, John Gilgun, Fred Wei-han Ho, Terry A. Kupers, Rakesh Ratti, John Silva, Malidoma P. Somé, Sy Safransky, Bhante Wimala, and many others.
"The essays in this book give us a window into remembered boyhood and outward to its adult expression, a prism through which we see how boys become men.... Franklin Abbott's brave and caring collection gives us genuine hope, because the authors, like real men, look at their lives squarely and honestly. And they do not flinch."Michael Kimmel, from the Foreword
"Though some of these more than 40 personal accounts convey the exquisite angst of the men's movement, the broad range of experiences should strike many chords."Publishers Weekly
