Product Description

What does it mean to be male in the 21st Century? Award-winning artist Grayson Perry explores what masculinity is: from sex to power from fashion to career prospects and what it could become—with illustrations throughout.In this witty and necessary new book artist Grayson Perry trains his keen eye on the world of men to ask what sort of man would make the world a better place? What would happen if we rethought the macho outdated version of manhood and embraced a different ideal? In the current atmosphere of bullying intolerance and misogyny demonstrated in the recent Trump versus Clinton presidential campaign The Descent of Man is a timely and essential addition to current conversations around gender. Apart from gaining vast new wardrobe options the real benefit might be that a newly fitted masculinity will allow men to have better relationships—and that’s happiness right? Grayson Perry admits he’s not immune from the stereotypes himself—yet his thoughts on everything from power to physical appearance from emotions to a brand new Manifesto for Men are shot through with honesty tenderness and the belief that for everyone to benefit updating masculinity has to be something men decide to do themselves. They have nothing to lose but their hang-ups.
