Enjoy a special gospel lunch at Rockwell Table and Stage in Los Feliz with T Cooper, along with music by Our Lady J and special guest Sam Pancake. T Cooper, author of three novels and editor of A Fictional History of the United States With Huge Chunks Missing, just released his most recent book, Real Man Adventures, an exploration of the masculine identity as a whole and in particular of his own experiences as a transgender male. Sam Pancake is an actor who's appeared on such TV shows as Curb Your Enthusiasm, Will & Grace, Friends, Fat Actress, Kitchen Confidential, American Dad, and Arrested Development.

McSweeney's says…

Real Man Adventures is Cooper's brash, wildly inventive, and often comic exploration of the paradoxes and pleasures of masculinity. He takes us through his transition into identifying as male, and how he went on to marry his wife and become an adoring stepfather of two children. Alternately bemused and exasperated when he feels compelled to explain all this, Cooper never loses his sense of humor. "Ten Things People Assume I Understand About Women But Actually Don’t," reads one chapter title, while another proffers: "Sometimes I Think the Whole of Modern History Can Be Explained by Testosterone."
