KIRKUS REVIEW

A post-Freudian-Friedan look at the American male -- 9,873 persons interviewed, frug instructors, surfboard riders, in depth, in fact submerged. As Matterhorn-climbing Bradd Havameyer put it: ""It's a man's job to scale the heights, and a woman's job to sit home and give him enough rope."" Mr. Lipsyte uses the rope to belt the un-fairer sex and to explore the exploitation of the male in the unfortunate differences which exist between the domestic Kaffeeklatsch and the institutional coffee-break. Undergraduate humor. A MANifesto for the Playboy Club membership.
