Welcome to My Garden
The Choices of Men is a fiery novel of gender politics written from the rarely heard male perspective.
Guy Scheels traded the free-love '70s for a wife, career and home. Now he finds he relinquished too much power over his lifestyle, career, and the custody of his child by a former marriage. Worse, he has relinquished his sexual power. He is maddeningly frustrated by his wife's sexual disinterest and by the culture's disapproval of extra-marital sex in any form - - in fact, its virtual war on male sexuality.
Guy has choices to make. His decisions and actions will stimulate men to think about their own choices. Women will be drawn into the plot out of curiosity, then ponder what choices the men in their lives are preparing to make. The story culminates in an explosive series of events that propel Guy to declare new rules by which he will live. Far from being misogynist, he ceases blaming women and assumes responsibility for his own action - - and inaction.
The Choices of Men is intended to provoke a gender dialogue. For too long, we've been hearing a monologue and women have been doing the talking. Choices gives men a voice, too.
