    MOBI Laura Kipnis ¼ ¼ Men MOBI ´ Men EpubOn a process level Men Notes from an Ongoing Investigation is a successful essay collection Kipnis is a fluid writer with an eye for the mot juste; she varies her sentence structures with grace; nothing she writes ever feels forced If that sounds like faint praise it’s because alas I have a lot of problems with the sentiments Kipnis expresses in her elegant prose Here are the main three1 So Much Freud Lady you are aware that further work has been done in psychology since the mid twentieth century? Kipnis’s references to Freud Oedipal complexes and psychosexual development are so numerous they would make an excellent drinking game condition an idea I am sorry I have only come up with now because I would probably have enjoyed this book if I had been a bit drunk for itSometimes this leads to interesting insights — there’s a reason Freud’s giant shoulders are the o

    MOBI Laura Kipnis ¼ ¼ Men MOBI ´ Men EpubThe title of this collection almost belies the wide range of topics Kipnis covers across 14 essays The cover is kitschy but the essays are deft especially The Lothario Gropers The Manly Man and Men Who Hate Hillary I appreciate Kipnis' fearlessness in skewering the men she covers while simultaneously poking fun at herself In fact some of the best moments in the collection are when she turns

    MOBI Laura Kipnis ¼ ¼ Men MOBI ´ Men EpubI have never read Pride Prejudice but I picked up the basics of its plot uickly If you’ve never experienced it but have lived through a few years of American cultural productions it has seeped into you as well It was the radioactive spider bite that spawned an entire genre the gamma ray burst that even now continues to produce the next thousand years of romantic comedies You'll recognize the zippy dialogue you'll know the “will theywon’t they?” plotline the dramatic irony Or perhaps if you are someone intimately familiar with the story you are right now yelling at your screen that I am dumb; that while it is clearly a comedy it is not the Ur romantic comedy You may continue to say perhaps that the inherent class divide between Elizabeth and Darcy reuired too much personal growth from both of them before they were ready for each other which runs counter to current rom com strictures which reuire two soulmates—perfect for each other from the get go—experiencing t

    MOBI Laura Kipnis ¼ ¼ Men MOBI ´ Men EpubI expected from this book dissection of men and lightheartedness The cover and title created that expectation instead I got essays that are almost incidentally about men which probably made it a stronger book The essays are well thought out and well written And although they aren't strictly speaking humor writing they do exude a certain flipness which at times is funny I didn't like this book well enough to look up the author's other books but based on her writ
