Reviews

"Boys is a multifaceted exploration of masculinity . . . Rachel Giese's vision of boyhood--and therefore manhood--is an enlarging, humane one. This is a beautifully reasoned work that should be required reading for anyone interested in detoxifying masculinity."--Michael Redhill, author of Giller-winning Bellevue Square
"Giese looks at masculinity with a surprisingly heartfelt curiosity and objectivity." --Literary Review of Canada
"A broad, readable take on the limits of modern-day masculinity, and how to push its boundaries to better serve our children and ourselves. It's full of love but unsentimental, with new tidbits for scholars of gender, race and identify, and valuable insight for parents of little boys, like me."
--The Globe and Mail
"Giese is highly successful at applying ideas that might otherwise feel academic or abstract. Through a combination of original reportage, personal experience, and scholarly research, Giese makes a strong case." --Quill & Quire
