Hey there, yogi: Yoga Dude Neal Pollack ties the facts in knots in his new memoir, Stretch

Like cooking, the art of yoga is bound by that stolid type of sociological stereotype claiming that although more women on the planet earth cook -- and in the modern world, practice traditional yoga -- it's the men who are always considered the greatest chefs... and yogis. But Neal Pollack, the much talked-about hipster satirist who's been seen in the pages of

McSweeney's

and

Vanity Fair

, entered the discipline from the lowest ranks, where the women toil, and he tells the story from a distinctly male perspective in

Stretch: The Unlikely Making of a Yoga Dude

. It's the kind of memoir that must reconcile the simplification of existence and the wearing of yoga togs with eating beef jerky and other manly customs.

Pollack will discuss and sign the Stretch tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Tattered Cover Colfax Avenue, 2526 E. Colfax Avenue www.tatteredcover.com, where you can also pick up a copy for $14.99. But before you do, here's a short video promo that pretty much says it all about this book.
