Steve Oney

Mercer University Press


327 pages




Oney, an author and magazine writer, collects 20 profiles of men he has written for publications like Esquire, Premiere, GQ, and Time between 1977 and 2011 that illustrate his view of what counts in a manAEs world: that men must be adept at fighting and dealing with conflict, they must create and invent themselves, they need a public persona, and they must be willing to explore their inner darkness. He provides profiles of fighters Herschel Walker, Chris Leon, Hubie Brown, Aaron Cohen, and Jake Jacoby; creators Robert Penn Warren, John Portman, Herb Alpert, Brandon Tartikoff, and Mark Lisanti; actors Harrison Ford, Dennis Franz, Nick Nolte, Harry Dean Stanton, and Bryan Brown; and desperadoes Bo Belinsky, Gregg Allman, Andrew Breitbart, Craig Raywood, and Harry Crews.
