In this book, the author applies diverse reading strategies to obviously "male" texts written by such authors as Ford Madox Ford, Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, J.M. Coetzee, Graham Swift and Julian Barnes.

Contrary to what some feminist critics claim, these texts are not monologic; they all present contradictory and fragmented masculine desires and offer critiques of the heterosexual masculine norm.
