The Reluctant Metrosexual: Dispatches from an Almost Hip Life

The Reluctant Metrosexual: Dispatches from an Almost Hip Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Peter Hyman wants the model/Fulbright Scholar girlfriend, the job with generous stock options and the well-appointed 2BR w/vu. Instead he routinely finds himself single and underemployed in his closet-free walk-up. The last woman he liked got back together with her lesbian lover; the one before that threw up on the first date.

Welcome to the almost hip life of a reluctant metrosexual–a straight man whose tastes are just gay enough. Equal parts cultural anthropologist, amateur sexologist and witty skeptic, Hyman wryly chronicles the promiscuity and perils of modern manhood, whether he’s undergoing a painful Brazilian bikini wax, lurching through a disastrous threesome, or poignantly reflecting on the Scotch-soaked grief of a difficult breakup.

So sit back in your Eames lounger and revel in the good fortune that The Reluctant Metrosexual is not you, it’s him.

Synopsis:

Equal parts urban anthropologist, amateur sexologist, and cranky skeptic, Hyman pens this hilarious collection of essays on the promiscuity and perils of single life in Manhattan with wry sophistication and enviable wit.
