Publisher’s Description: 

To help launch the literary nonprofit Narrative 4, Esquire asked eighty of the world's greatest writers to chip in with a story, all with the title, "How to Be a Man." The result is The Book of Men, an unflinching investigation into the essence of manhood. With contributions from literary luminaries as diverse as the subjects they capture, and curated by the editors of Esquire, the National Book Award-winning Colum McCann, and Narrative 4, a global non-profit devoted to using storytelling as a means to empathy, The Book of Men might not teach you how to negotiate a deal or mix a Manhattan, but it does scratch at that most eternal of questions: What is a Man? Contributors include Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Kurt Andersen, Amy Bloom, James Lee Burke, Sloane Crosley, Michael Cunningham, Geoff Dyer, Ben Fountain, Aleksandar Hemon, Khaled Hosseini, William Kittredge, Ayana Mathis, Ian McEwan, Ta Obreht, Joseph O'Connor, Benjamin Percy, Salman Rushdie, Mona Simpson, Jess Walter, and Terry Tempest Williams, among others.
