'Leonard Michaels writes prose of exquisite clarity.' Ian McEwan
The late 1970s. Seven men - friends, acquaintances, and strangers - gather in a suburban home in Berkeley, California. They intend to start a men's club, the purpose of which isn't immediately clear to any of them. But as the evening wears on and the drinks wear thin, they discover a powerful and passionate desire to talk - to unburden and to share, to try and comprehend their feelings, their insecurities, their lives.
First published in 1981, The Men's Club is a scathing, pitying, absurdly dark and funny novel about manhood and masculinity.
Leonard Michaels (1933-2003) was one of the most admired and influential American writers of the last half century. He was the author of five collections of short stories, and two novels: Sylvia (1993), and The Men's Club (1981), as well as numerous essays and screenplays.
