The White Guy

September 2008

“The second half of the book won me over. The sections on spiritual beliefs, emotional life and white guy culture intrigued me, and I realized Hunt was discussing serious social prejudices by cleverly disguising them with light humour.”

July 2008

“Hunts book is more personal than Landers [Stuff White People Like], documenting his whiteness through his childhood and adolescence in Winnipeg, various career moves and eventual marriage to a US-borne actress. He talks about having an identity crisis in his 20s when a successful lawyer girlfriend out-earned him, and pinpoints his increasing interest in his lawn as a true sign of his aging white man-ness.”

“Stephen Hunt’s The White Guy is a pleasure to read, with a tone that’s funny and self-deprecating – and a narrative informed by the perspective of Melanee, his African-American wife. The book is enlivened by witty lists (a typically white guy form of expression) and sharp and timely writing…”

“Hunt does a reasonably entertaining job of covering the white waterfront, and some of his zingers are spot on. ...The White Guy adds up to a funny-but-serious portrait of the species, and enables the rest of us to run for cover or attempt to change the world, or both.”
