MEN I’VE NEVER BEEN, Michael Sadowski

Pitched in the tradition of BETTYVILLE and THE TENDER BAR, the coming-of-age journey of a gender non-conforming male trying to navigate the blind alleys of traditional manhood facing the gauntlet of masculinity tests he feels destined to fail: the role models that don’t deliver, the TV tropes and archetypes that never seem to fit, as well as a universal story of finding one’s true identity. Sadowski is Executive Director of the Bard Early College Initiative and education faculty member. ( University of Wisconsin Press in the Living Out series/World Rights/Spring 2021)
