Manhood - A Journey from Childhood into the Fierce Order of Virility

Author(s): Michel Leiris; Richard Howard (Translator); Susan Sontag (Foreword by)

Society & Culture

Not only one of the frankest of autobiographies, but also a brilliantly written book, Leiris' Manhood mingles memories, philosophic reflections, sexual revelation, meditations on bullfighting, and the life-long progress of self-discovery.--Washington Post Book World

Leiris writes to appall, and thereby to receive from his readers the gift of a strong emotion--the emotion needed to defend himself against the indignation and disgust he expects to arouse in his readers.--Susan Sontag, New York Review of Books
