The Making of Bernie Trumble
A Fable of Man and Mutt in a World Run by Women
Robert J. Wetherall
Introducing Bernie Trumble, renegade. Born in a world ruled by women, where women direct commerce, make the laws, create the art, and dictate fashion - while frustrated males stay home to wash socks and wipe runny noses.
The Making of Bernie Trumble pits one man against the system. Bernie is an outcast because he thinks, unlike most people in his world, that males and females should have equal opportunity for growth and fulfillment. Bernie risks everything - family, friends, job, and self-esteem - in a stubborn attempt to find happiness by closing the gender gap. Maybe a transgender operation is the answer. Or maybe not.
Bernie's odyssey takes him to extremes, plunging him into one adventure after another. Like Dorothy in the Land of Oz, he meets a lot of interesting people along the way - and some of them aren't so nice. But through it all, this humorous fantasy pokes fun at the real world and gives a surprising look at gender in society, where the roles of men and women are not only unequal, but totally reversed. The result is at times sad and maddening, as the reality of gender inequality is exposed in all its nasty detail - but the tongue-in-cheek flair helps ease the pain with every guilty chuckle.
