Overview

Employing a sort of leaping or mosaic structure and incorporating e-mails re penis-enlargement, questionable limericks, jokes, graffiti and a photo of a "penis latte," along with personal anecdote and probes of books and films, Deep Too is a book of non-fiction stories. It is a funny and sometimes biting book about the phenomenon of male strut and competition. Thinking with feeling, the author posits an expansive masculinity that rises above stereotype, traditional roles and the either/or choices they so often involve.

Reviews

Praise for Deep Too:In Deep Too, Stan Dragland takes a long, hard look at the penis joke. To the work of illuminating pain, he puts his enormous heart and brilliant mind, his ever-ready wit, and a lambent prose that truly glows from within.
- Marina Endicott, author of The Little ShadowsWhat appeals about this small essay/memoir, as in much of Dragland's critical work, is in how he doesn't provide over-answers, but a series of directions, slipping-answers, queries and other observations.
