Kiwi icon Lyn of Tawa — she of mangled vowel fame — goes on the prowl in search of the ultimate Kiwi bloke. The girl-from-the-suburb's mission takes in the gamut of masculine mythology, from Man Alone to mateship, and Lyn provides manthropological reflections ("can a woman ever be a mate?"). Made when the good keen man was facing up to the challenge from 'knackered' SNAGs, she travels from the West Coast (for sex education) to the Wellesley Club, from rugby scrums to rabbit culls, and en route meets hunters, lawyers, students and ... gay ten-pin bowlers.
