A Man’s World
Author Steve Oney will be dropping by Tecolote Book Shop in the upper village to celebrate the publication of his new anthology, A Man’s World: A Galley of Fighters, Creators, Actors, and Desperadoes. The reading and discussion will begin at 4 pm on Saturday, July 27.
The book, we are told, features twenty profiles of men written during Oney’s 40-plus years as a magazine journalist. The subjects include the famous (Harrison Ford), the outrageous (Andrew Breitbart), the brilliant (Robert Penn Warren), the legendary (Herschel Walker), and the tortured (Gregg Allman). The stories originally appeared in such publications as Esquire, GQ, Playboy, Time, The New York Times Magazine, and Los Angeles.
At Tecolote, Oney will discuss the stories behind the stories. He will also take questions. Light refreshments will be provided.
Oney’s first book, And the Dead Shall Rise, an examination of the Leo Frank lynching, won the American Bar Association’s Silver Gavel Award for best work on the nation’s legal system and the National Jewish Book Award for history.
