Self-Made Man by Norah Vincent
Book DescriptionA journalist's provocative and spellbinding account of her eighteen months spent disguised as a man Norah Vincent became an instant media sensation with the publication of "Self-Made Man," her take on just how hard it is to be a man, even in a man's world. Following in the tradition of John Howard Griffin ("Black Like Me"), Norah spent a year and a half disguised as her male alter ego, Ned, exploring what men are like when women aren't around. As Ned, she joins a bowling team, takes a high-octane sales job, goes on dates with women (and men), visits strip clubs, and even manages to infiltrate a monastery and a men's therapy group. At once thought- provoking and pure fun to read, "Self-Made Man" is a sympathetic and thrilling tour de force of immersion journalism. "
