A candid work of nonfiction from provocative Esquire columnist Stephen Marche - with interjections from his wife, writer Sarah Fulford - exploring the complicated, changing relationship between men and women in today’s society.
We are in the middle of a revolution of everyday life, one that can be found everywhere that men and women coexist. In the office. In families. In houses. On the street. Online. In bed. As we encounter each of these situations, we ask ourselves: Who has the power? How much can we say? What are we expected to sacrifice? Is it possible to be equal?
The conversation about the relationship between men and women - both in our individual lives and as a society - has never been louder. Now, with a refreshing and honest voice, Stephen Marche delivers his vision for what true equality between men and women really means and what it could look like. As he does, he discovers not only commonalities, but contradictions, and that for the first time ever, women and men are truly coming to know each other. Marche has found a compelling way to draw upon the latest research about gender relationships while providing his own commentary and synthesis in a successful combination of academic/scientific research and personal experience that is highlighted by his wife’s annotations.
A candid exploration that sits perfectly between social science, current affairs, and memoir, Marche’s The Unmade Be is a groundbreaking, conversation-starting exploration of men, women, and the way they interact with one another.
