In “The Language of Men” Anthony D’Aries searches to learn more about the father he emulates, a Vietnam Veteran who works at the local deli and rebuilds muscle cars in his spare time. The memoir, the third book published by Hudson Whitman/Excelsior College Press, earned an honorable mention this week from the New England Book Festival.
Traveling to Vietnam with his wife, who teaches health and anatomy classes to sex workers in Ho Chi Minh City, D’Aries explores conflicting images of masculinity, and, as his marriage begins to falter, arrives at realizations that begin to explain his father’s life, as well as his own troubling behaviors.
"We're thrilled Anthony is beginning to receive some much-deserved recognition," said Susan Petrie, director, Hudson Whitman/Excelsior College Press.
