Reseña del editor:

A child of the 1950s from a small New England town, -perfect Paul- earns straight A's and shines in social and literary pursuits, all the while keeping a secret--from himself and the rest of the world. Struggling to be, or at least to imitate, a straight man, through Ivy League halls of privilege and bohemian travels abroad, loveless intimacy and unrequited passion, Paul Monette was haunted, and finally saved, by a dream of -the thing I'd never even seen: two men in love and laughing.-

Searingly honest, witty, and humane, Becoming a Man is the definitive coming-out story in the classic coming-of-age genre.
