Author: Robert Twigger

Format: Paperback

Number of Pages: 208


Having learnt aikido with the Tokyo riot police (Angry White Pyjamas), hunted for the world's longest snake in the jungles of the Far East (Big Snake), Robert Twigger now turns his attention to other traditionally male pursuits and pastimes (some of which are fairly close to home, some of which are more extreme), and looks at the questions these raise about masculinity and the role of man in modern society. Being a Man features Twigger participating in and writing on: the informal rules and thrill-seeking of solo climbing, bullfighting in Spain, the 'illicit pleasures of buying my first gun' and the rules of survival with a tribe of Naga headhunters- the sort of activities and pursuits often scorned in the modern, interiorised, office-basd world
