A Penn State professor asks “Where have all the men gone?” in this look at the rise of “basement boys,” who’ve shunned marriage, work, and family to move back in with their parents. Interesting that as a child, the author’s single mom was a bohemian painter of abstracts. “We had two fellow art teachers over for holiday dinners,” he writes. “They were the Two Kens to us kids, though later I learned they were gay partners.” — Review: Donalevan Maines
