|I’m a Man: Sex, Gods and Rock ‘n’ Roll
“Ruth Padel’s brilliant, wide-ranging I’m A Man makes the connections between rock and myth absolutely plain” – Ian Sansone, London Review of Books
“I’m A Man started out as a book about Greek myth, opera and women, and ended up as a book about Greek myth, rock music and masculinity. It is so illuminating – let’s hope that one day she will write the opera one, too.” Hampstead and Highgate Express.
“She has earned a place on the high table of rock criticism alongside the likes of Greil Marcus. Eureka.” Daily Telegraph
