A journalist’s provocative and spellbinding account of her eighteen months spent disguised as a man
Norah Vincent changed into an instant media sensation with the publication of Self-Made Man, her tackle just how hard it’s to be a person, even in a person’s world. Following within the tradition of John Howard Griffin (Black Like Me), Norah spent a year and a half disguised as her male alter ego, Ned, exploring what men are like when girls aren’t around. As Ned, she joins a bowling team, takes a high-octane sales job, is going on dates with girls (and men), visits strip clubs, or even manages to infiltrate a monastery and a men’s therapy group. Immediately thought- provoking and pure a laugh to read, Self-Made Man is a sympathetic and thrilling tour de force of immersion journalism.
