Old friends play matchmakers to bring Guy and Gloria back together in this rom-com that will help dissolve your giftee’s woes about what to cook for the 20th holiday potluck they’ll be attending this year—or at least put their troubles into a little light-hearted perspective.
What Kind of Man Are You  by Degan Davis (Brick Books)Give him something extra to ponder in the mirror next time he’s using that new shaving kit you bought him by pairing the gift with Degan Davis’s debut collection of poems entitled What Kind of Man Are You. This bold and deeply moving collection prompts readers to explore the divide between the traditional male archetype and the many identities of the 21st century male through a modern day lens. In a language that resonates, Davis gives the unspoken a space in which to be heard.* * *
