The Man in the Gray Flannel Skirt Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The grandson of political philosopher Sidney Hook and ivy-league educated former clerk for a federal judge recounts his decision to leave the professional world to experiment with the norms and conventions of society, an effort that prompted him to don women's skirts and espadrilles as part of an effort to define himself. A first book.
