About Marty Beckerman
A former Esquire editor who has contributed to Playboy, Salon, Wired, Discover, the Daily Beast, and many other prominent publications, Beckerman is the author of numerous insightful and uproarious books: Death to All Cheerleaders: One Adolescent Journalist’s Cheerful Diatribe Against Teenage Plasticity, Generation S.L.U.T. (sexually liberated urban teens): A Brutal Feel-Up Session with Today’s Sex-Crazed Adolescent Populace, Dumbocracy: Adventures with the Loony Left, the Rabid Right and Other American Idiots, and The Heming Way: How to Unleash the Booze-Inhaling, Animal-Slaughtering, War-Glorifying, Hairy-Chested, Retro-Sexual Legend Within... Just Like Papa!.
Beckerman’s latest book, The Heming Way, is a tongue-in-cheek guide to masculinity based on the life and works of Ernest Hemingway, history’s ultimate man. Young males today—obsessed with Facebook, Twitter, and Nintendo—cannot skin a fish, dominate a battlefield, or transform majestic creatures of the Southern Hemisphere into piano keyboards. Beckerman demonstrates how modern eunuchs—brainwashed by PETA and Alcoholics Anonymous—can learn from Papa's unparalleled example: unshaven, meat-devouring, wife-divorcing, and gloriously self-destructive. Kirkus Reviews called it “a funny collection,” and it was featured by USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, and MSNBC. With his bold opinions and even bolder comedy, Beckerman will entertain and educate audiences on subjects such as politics, sex, religion and everything else you’re not supposed to discuss at the dinner table.
Nobody will agree with him 100% of the time, but everyone with a sense of humor will find something to love.
