The 'stache is back! After decades of being much maligned in Western culture, the mustache is enjoying a cultural renaissance, thanks to the annual phenomenon of Movember (when men grow facial hair during November to raise funds for prostate cancer research) and the retro/modern mo's sported by the likes of Ryan Gosling and James Franco. One Thousand Mustachesis both a lighthearted cultural history and a style manual; it's a history of the 'stache through the ages and its manifestations in politics, movies, music, and art. It's a book for those with mo's, as well as those who love 'em. Allan Peterkinis the author of One Thousand Beardsand co-author of The Bearded Gentleman.
