This bright book of sassy cartoons redefines what it takes to be a man. Long story short, there are no rules, nor should there be. This book is definitive proof that masculinity as we know it is a myth. A big, dumb, silly, and quite poorly constructed myth! This book pokes lighthearted fun at the very notion of manhood by offering a contemporary guide to masculinity. Thus: How to Be A Big Strong Man.

Through its 150 tongue-firmly-in-cheek illustrations by queer artist Samuel Leighton-Dore, this book explores the many identities of a modern man. A manly man gets a pedicure, and a manly man calls his grandmother for a nice long chat. Above all, a manly man can cry whenever he pleases and knows that "manliness" is an outdated construct.... Duh! 144 pages. Hardcover.
