The author of And the Dead Shall Rise returns to discuss A Man’s World; a collection featuring intimate profiles of some of the most interesting men of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Oney realized early in his career that he was interested in how men face challenges and cope with success and failure, seeing in their struggles something of his own. Written over a forty-year period for publications including Esquire, Premiere, GQ, TIME, Los Angeles, and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Magazine, the stories, many prizewinning, bring to life famous men like Harrison Ford; brilliant men like Robert Penn Warren; tortured men like Gregg Allman; and unknown men like Chris Leon, a twenty-year-old Marine Corps corporal killed in the Iraq war.
