Summary
From Homeboy to Latin Lover, America entertains a host of images about Latino men, yet all are variations on the Macho Man, virile and brash, full of passion and testosterone. From today's best-known as well as emerging Latino writers, poet and editor Ray Gonzalez has gathered sixteen personal essays on machismo and masculinity written especially for Muy Macho. The result is a rich and exciting collection of men talking about themselves, about their wives and lovers, about the fragile love between fathers and sons, and about the process by which men learn from and teach each other how to be men. Emotionally honest and powerfully written, the voices of Muy Macho break the "cult of silence" among Latino men which prevents our understanding the true nature of machismo
