In chapters on the penis (in all its incarnations), fifties Hollywood, male beauty standards, and sexual harassment, and in discussions of topics ranging from Marlon Brando and Boogie Nights to Philip Roth and Lady Chatterleys Lover, Bordo offers fresh and unexpected insights. Always -- whether she is examining Michael Jordan or Humbert Humbert, the butch phallus or her own grade-school experiences -- she rejects rigid categories in favor of an honest, nuanced version of men as flesh-and-blood human beings.
