Of course, it's all an over-the-top goof on what passes for masculinity in our culture. It's prototype "Real Man" is named Flex Crush. He is a nuclear waste long haul driver who eats two dozen eggs and a pound of bacon at breakfast and lives on Ring Dings, pretzels and beer otherwise. He's nobody's idea of "real," and his habits and comments are so absurd that it's a sure bet Flex will never reproduce.
This book WILL make you laugh, and laugh hard.
Still, REAL MEN DON'T EAT QUICHE also pokes fun at the "soft" male who seemed to be evolving at that time, showing us that neither extreme is really workable. In that respect, this satire speaks to the gender and role confusion many men felt (and feel) in the face of a changing society.
The first sequel, a cookbook with substantial recipes, REAL MEN DON'T COOK QUICHE, is really misnamed. The fact is that REAL MEN AREN'T AFRAID TO EAT QUICHE.
Sez You! :)
Overall the book is funny and a good read. Just don't read too much into it.
