  • Men As Friends: From Cicero to Svevo to Cataldo

    Neither a cautionary tale nor a polemic, Men as Friends is about a variety of male friendships and a variety of men. A “coming-of-old-age story,” it speaks to an audience of men who love or have loved other men but are too embarrassed to say so, opening the reader to the deep sadness of loss as well as the joy of its acknowledgment.
