The Unmade Bed: The Messy Truth about Men and Women in the Twenty-first Century

The Unmade Bed is a rollicking read and a very frank look at issues at an important set of issues from the male perspective.” (Anne-Marie Slaughter, President and CEO New America)

“There is much pleasure found between the covers of this particular messy bed.” (<em>The Globe and Mail</em>)

The Unmade Bed is poignant, thought-provoking and a necessary addition to a cultural moment where the Western world is grappling with the biggest shift in gender relations in human history.” (<em>National Post</em>)

“What Marche argues in The Unmade Bed makes great sense, and he is nothing if not a fluent stylist.” (<em>Winnipeg Free Press</em>)

“The definitions of masculinity and manliness are changing, and Marche’s commentaries will help readers understand how. Satisfying food for thought on the ever-changing dynamics of men and women as they interact and go about their individual lives.” (<em>Kirkus Reviews</em>)

“The book feels almost like a type of cerebral entry an educated writer, father, or husband might make to himself in his journal: a private fact-finding mission to meditate on the rules of today and better survive the culture of tomorrow. Thankfully, Marche made this particular journal entry public.” (<em>Booklist</em>)

“Stephen Marche is a very brave man: in The Unmade Bed he makes the case that relations between men and women have never been better. Because he is also a very brilliant writer, he pulls it off. A thrilling read, no less because his wife has provided footnotes.” (Ian Brown, author of <em>Sixty</em>)
