September 11, 2016, Sunday afternoon -- Reading Robert Bly

At a taqueria in the Mission District
He is reading Iron John: A book about Men, by Robert Bly. His girlfriend is a therapist and counselor and he is interested in gender identity. The book uses mythology to talk about toxic masculinity in our society, how boys today lack of role models, and how our society has lost traditions to teach boys how to be men.

His current favorite writer is Anne Carson, an award winning Canadian translator, poet, and essayist, who has a background in the classics.
