Flip the book open, and the first thing you come to is its dedication: "To my beloved wife, Lisa McNulty, who saves my life on a daily basis." Yes, ladies and gents, the author is a self-proclaimed "dyke." But "Self-Made Man" turns out not to be what it threatens to be, a men-are-scum diatribe destined for best-seller status in the more militant alternative bookstores of Berkeley and Ann Arbor. Rather, it's a thoughtful, diligent, entertaining piece of first-person investigative journalism.
But.....but you said it was by a "self-proclaimed "dyke""! How can it therefore be thoughtful, dilligent and entertaining? After all, Mr Kamp, you seem very surprised yourself that such a creature could write a book that wasn't a misandrist diatribe. For fuck's sake.
