Margaret Morganroth Gullette, Womens Studies Research Center, Brandeis University, USA Revisiting contemporary US fiction by focusing on cultural representations of aging masculinities not only encourages a reassessment of such texts in terms of dominant cultural beliefs that challenges prevailing perspectives on gender and age, but more importantly offers insights into how the form influences our perceptions by either supporting or subverting preconceived notions of masculinity. Roberta Maierhofer, Center for Inter-American Studies, University of Graz, Austria A much-needed and impressive contribution to the fields of age studies and gender studies, both of which have overlooked the study of men and masculinity. Focusing on representations of aging and old men in U.S. fiction, contributors produce a rich array of images and interpretations that challenge the dominant masculinity script and redress the cultural invisibility of older men. Thomas R. Cole, McGovern Chair in Medical Humanities and Director of the McGovern Center for Humanities and Ethics, University of Texas, USA This book focuses on representations of aging masculinities in contemporary U.S. fiction, including shifting perceptions of physical and sexual prowess, depression, and loss, but also greater wisdom and confidence, legacy, as well as new affective patterns. The collection also incorporates factors such as race, sexuality and religion. The volume includes studies, amongst others, on Philip Roth, Paul Auster, Toni Morrison, Ernest Gaines, and Edmund White. Ultimately, this study proves that mens aging experiences as described in contemporary U.S. literature and culture are as complex and varied as those of their female counterparts. Josep M. Armengol is Professor of U.S. Literature and Gender Studies at Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha, Spain. He is the author of Masculinities in Black and White: Manliness and Whiteness in (African) American Literature (2014), among others, and is Director of the project No Country for Old Men? Representations of Masculinity and Aging in Contemporary U.S. Fiction.
