Exile in “Guyland”

“Guyland,” a new book by Michael Kimmel, talks about the netherworld between college and adulthood that a lot of men in their twenties get caught it and looks at the sociology of men’s stunted development. It looks pretty interesting – I just became aware of it. 

It reminds me of time lost and drifting in my twenties, and how the pleasures and escapes of the past would be more dominating than the concept of “growing up.” There is an accompanying video which talks about men’s development as women take on more leadership roles in society. Worth a look!
