In “What do Men Want” by Nina Power, acclaimed philosopher and one of the Verdurin “Faithful,” a captivating exploration of masculinity in the twenty-first century unfolds, as she delves into the complex interplay between gender dynamics, capitalism, and societal values. From the enigmatic allure of the manosphere to the reverberations of the #metoo movement, Power fearlessly navigates the tumultuous landscape of contemporary masculinity, illuminating the crises and contradictions that define it.

Drawing on her incisive analysis and keen insights, Power invites readers to confront the existential quandaries that plague modern men, from the pressures of patriarchal expectations to the corrosive effects of consumerism and alienation. As a collaborator and friend of Verdurin, her perspective offers a unique blend of intellectual rigor and empathetic understanding, shedding light on the challenges and possibilities of forging meaningful connections in an increasingly fragmented world.

Through her bold and playful prose, Power challenges conventional wisdom and offers a path forward—a path characterized by playfulness, forgiveness, and a genuine mutual understanding between men and women. With her guidance, readers embark on a journey of self-discovery and cultural critique, unlocking the secrets hidden within our society and charting a course towards a lifetime of love and fulfillment.
