The Reluctant Metrosexual
Dispatches From An Almost Hip LifeBook - 2004
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 thatThe Reluctant Metrosexualis not you, it's him.
