After the Sixties, after feminism, after political correctness, how does a boy become a man? In Playing Catch with My Mother, Greg Lichtenberg speaks for the silent sons of the gender revolution. It is an astonishing debut: exquisitely written, funny, sexy, wise, and painfully honest about the fate of good intentions. The family experiment began with hope and energy. His mother returned to writing poetry and found her first job. His father quit corporate life to become a rock critic. Together they set out to make a close and tolerant family, where men and women were equals, where a little boy who dreamed of sports heroism could still be allowed to cry. With the intensity of a child's perceptions, Lichtenberg evokes both the promise of this brave new world and the searing disappointment of its downward spiral into harsh words, blows, and divorce. If his parents were at war, how could he trust the truth of what they taught? And if violence and doubt warred in him as well, how could he trust himself? This is uncharted territory for both men and memoir, a minefield of contradictory ideals, and Lichtenberg maps it with a visceral sense of gender flash points: from schoolyard lessons in cruelty to the secret romances of eight-year-olds, from the politics of high school dating to a group of friends striving for honesty across gender lines. Threaded like a fuse through it all is the power of sexual desire to explode every preconception.
