Men on Divorce: The Other Side of the Story. Earl Cash's book, John A. Williams: The Evolution of a Black Writer (1975), is the first I know of that is derived from a dissertation. New York: Harcourt Brace (1997). CASH, Earl A. John A. Williams: The Evolution of a Black Writer. New York: The Third Press (1975). Gilbert H. Muller's John A. Williams (Twayne's United States Authors Series 472) was published nine years later and therefore contains far more material. I understand that two more dissertations in French (in addition to N'Goma's) have been written.

Penny Kaganoff, Susan Spano. There has been a distinct lack of male reportage from the front lines of the divorce wars until now, when writers such as Benjamin Cheever, Edward Hoagland, and Lawrence Block are joined with others in a unique collection that tells the other side of the story.

Divorce registers differently in Italy, per Tim Parks's chronicle of a friend's intoxicating affair, and in Japan, where self-fulfillment American style doesn't come easily, as Richard Gilman and his current wife discovered at great cost. But self-examination is the same everywhere, as these essays too often attest.

The fifteen original essays in this "rare, unusually focused anthology" (Publishers Weekly)-by writers such as Lawrence Block, Benjamin Cheever, Edward Hoagland, and Walter Kirn - explore divorce and its repercussions from a male perspective. ISBN13:9780156005470. Release Date:January 1998.

Comments: (2)
A mixed bag of essays by men about how they've viewed their divorce, or divorces. Almost all are written many years after the event, allowing some life perspective on the very complex, all too common experience of divorce. I found it very refreshing to read men's largely unheard feelings on this subject.
This is a follow up to the editors first compilation titled "Women on Divorce: A Bedside Companion." Why women's essays about their divorce are a "bedside companion" while men's feelings on the subject are seen as a second thought and "the other side of the story" I found telling of the editors mindset and sadly the prevailing societal notion that women's feelings are valued more than men's.
I noticed that the essays were slanted mostly towards men who led a life of extreme womanizing and numerous relationships after their divorces. This doesn't resonate with my experience of the other divorced men I know.
The editors have put together an interesting read and deserve credit for acknowledging the experience divorce has on men. I could easily have passed on some of the selections, but the following alone I found worth the cost of the book:
- Michael Ventura's "The Ex-Files" speaks eloquently to the specific loss and guilt that is divorce, and on the unresolved feelings we carry around. "Let's not pretend that divorce is anything but failure... Whether it was reckless or silly or inspired (or all of the above), it was still important... You hurt others, you got hurt, and you failed... Of course, failure is not confined to divorce. Many a marriage is a walking failure - people joined in a pact not to know themselves or one another, who try to pull that not-knowing around themselves like a shield against the world."
-Michael Ryan's "How to Get Divorced" absolutely killed me. A completely sarcastic guide book for how to wreck a marriage. Example: "If something about your wife bothers you, speak right up! There's really no good reason why your wife can't be better in every way, if only she would try harder. Scrutinize her aloud on a daily basis." And "Stop Having Fun! This is tricky, because you and your wife probably wouldn't have gotten married in the first place unless you had been having at least a little fun together." But his best advice for ruining your marriage is "When in doubt, be selfish!" It allowed me to totally laugh at my own divorce and my role in messing up the marriage.
-Daniel Asa Rose has a great essay about the love/hate/grief that he has for his ex, and how his promiscuity hides the fact that at heart he's a one woman man.
This is a sad book that seems to be written by men to confirm the (female) editor's views of men. I'm a man that's been divorced and have had serious non-marital relationships. I also know many men who have been divorced. None of these essays resonate with our experiences.
If I were cynical, I would suspect that these are professionals writing for a market with preconceived notions, or the editors selected those essays to match their preconceptions.
