Real Man Adventures

NEW in Paperback from McSweeney’s Books

Charged, personal, and entirely original, Real Man Adventures is a brash, wildly inventive, and comic exploration of the paradoxes and pleasures of masculinity. A brilliant collage of letters, essays, artwork and interviews, this book will forever change what you think it means to be a man.

Psst: You can cop the limited edition album inspired by the book from Ben’s Barbershop in NYC.

“In this mindbendingly good book, T Cooper gets to the heart of what it is to be human, by circling around questions most of us don’t ever know to ask. Subtle, engaging, righteously furious and often brilliant, this book radiates infinite possibility.”
—Nick Flynn

“Brave and often hilarious.”
—Vanity Fair
