Thomas Page McBee, author of the Rumpus’ “Self-Made Man” column, presents his highly-praised memoir, Man Alive at WORD Bookstore in Brooklyn on November 13 at 7:00 PM with Saeed Jones, the editor of BuzzFeed LGBT and author of Prelude to Bruise.

Examining the nature of manhood through two encounters that shaped his––his abusive father and the mugger who threatened his life––Thomas tries to understand these two deeply flawed men as he works out his identity. An examination of personal histories, and the ways in which we all work to create our identities, Man Alive has been praised by Roxane Gay and Heidi Julavits.
