    At one point in my reading, Goodreads in its infinite Twitter wisdom sent out the Tweet 88% done with Menwhich my younger brother promptly pounced upon I just wanted to let my little brother know that I am now completely done with Men.P.S After initially posting my review, Goodreads asked me, Which of your friends might enj

    The 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,
