Reviews

A visceral, sparky read . . . Beautifully written [and] deep and affecting . . . Absolutely fascinating -- BBC Radio 4 A Good Read
A blazingly wise and beautiful book -- A.L. KENNEDY
McBee's writing bristles with an elegant swagger . . . Amateur is as much a reconciliation as an emancipation . . . Punchy, thought-provoking stuff * * Sunday Times * *
In an age when identity feels so splintered and fractional, McBee's empathy with men feels refreshing, but it's his determination to be accountable that is radical. He resolves his own masculinity crisis by doing the things men often think they're doing, but so often are not: listening, asking questions, seeking help, being vulnerable * * Observer * *
Amateur is a heck of a tale, and McBee is a gifted memoirist * * Financial Times * *
Amateur provocatively describes the ways in which an increasingly fragile patriarchal culture needs to keep men in their place. A quest for self-liberation, this loving and deeply intelligent exploration of contemporary masculinities is essential reading -- DEBORAH LEVY
One of my favourite books of 2018 . . . A memoir about boxing, masculinity and transitioning. It is exceptional -- NIKESH SHUKLA
An eye-opening story about gender and courage, and confirmation that there are many different fights to being a man * * Guardian * *
Amidst a generational shift bringing to question what exactly defines gender, this book plays like x-ray glasses, examining every oddity one may pretend isn't apparent -- JORDAN STEPHENS
This is more than a book; it is an act of heroism. It inspires, defines, encourages and leaves memories. It is an insight into what it truly means to be human in a world that is fast forgetting how to do so -- JAMES RHODES
