Product Details


“Alexandra Robbins…spent a year documenting Greek life for her excellent new book, Fraternity…. Robbins makes the case that fraternities are not monolothic and that, done right, they can be healthy spaces.”
Mother Jones

Fraternity, an unfiltered, candid examination of toxic masculinity in Greek life, is absolutely a product of the #MeToo movement—yet there are no villains or clear bad guys. Writing an anti-fraternity manifesto would likely have been an infinitely easier choice for Robbins, but it wasn’t the path she took. Instead, she sought successfully to weave hope from chaos.”
Ms. Magazine

“[A] well-researched, even-handed book…[with] admirable reportorial balance.” 
The Daily Beast

“I truly believe that Alexandra Robbins is the greatest non-fiction author of our time. By focusing her writing on the subjective narratives of ‘characters’ who appear as case studies, her books read as novels with critical analysis essays interspersed throughout. Her craftsmanship is unparalleled.”
—Melissa Fabello, PhD, former Managing Editor of Everyday Feminism and author of Appetite

One of the 13 “can’t-miss, shouldn’t-skip books” of 2019
Syndicated columnist The Bookworm Sez 

“Robbins offers the most compelling, pro-student approach to the future of fraternities being presented through mainstream media at this point in time. More than any representative of any fraternity, any umbrella association, or any association president, Robbins is our most articulate, informed and capable advocate in 2019.”

“A thoughtful, important take.”

“Skillfully paced…This engaging behind-the-scenes account of fraternities, their traditions, and how they influence (a certain strain of) American men will interest college-bound students, their parents, and readers contemplating American culture.”
Publishers Weekly

“Investigative journalist Robbins takes readers on an eye-opening tour of contemporary college fraternities. Highlighting the changing roles and unique pressures millennial males are currently facing, Robbins recounts a year in the life of two committed fraternity brothers…Her energetic prose and dramatic insider’s perspective will keep readers both captivated and well informed.” 

“Compelling profiles of men navigating the processes and pressures of rushing, pledging, and troubleshooting the hypermasculine fraternity culture and the rigid guidelines of collegiate social engagement…Much of the material will be useful and informative for college-prep students and their parents (a final section provides advice for both groups). Real-life perspectives on the immersive, unifying, and chancy culture of fraternities.”
Kirkus Reviews

“A riveting read.”
