An entertaining and at times enlightening collection of essays on a broad range of topics related to gender and family roles. All of them are well-written and thoughtful. They are at their strongest when Chabon focuses on social commentary. Some of his personal anecdotes really resonated with me, but many are too particular and situated to his unique context to feel like they connect universally; and, for reasons I can't quite name, his confessional moments never felt truly vulnerable enough to me. Still, I appreciated all of them even when they didn't strike an emotional chord, and really enjoyed the ones that did.
