    PDF Men MOBI â ¸ ancient history.co Men EpubOn a process level Men Notes from an Ongoing Investigation is a successful essay collection Kipnis is a fluid writer with an eye for the mot juste; she varies her sentence structures with grace; nothing she writes ever feels forced If that sounds like faint praise it’s because alas I have a lot of problems with the sentiments Kipnis expresses in her elegant prose Here are the mai

    PDF Men MOBI â ¸ ancient history.co Men EpubThe title of this collection almost belies the wide range of topics Kipnis covers across 14 essays The cover is kitschy but the essays are deft especially The Lothario Gropers The Manly Man and Men Who Hate Hillary I appreciate Kipnis' fearlessness in skewering the men she covers while simultaneously poking fun at herself In fact some of the best moments in the collection are when she turns inward or identifies with less savory aspects of the men in uestion she illustrated men performing for a few crumbs of love with a sto

    PDF Men MOBI â ¸ ancient history.co Men EpubLaura Kipnis is one of those university professors whose lives I envy living in New York going to cocktail parties with other intellectuals and engaging in witty banter This book is largely about the kind of men you'd find at such parties literary critics political pundits other academics The exceptions are the first essay about Larry Flynt and the last about Andrea Dworkin So if you're looking for thoughts about your average man on the bus or the local hipster bar or anyone a non academic with a subscription to the New York Times might know you're out of luck Still an engaging read if not completely relevant to me
