From the writer and veteran columnist comes an unblinking look at the transitions of middle age. The book plumbs the physical, spiritual, and emotional changes unique to the middle years: from the emptying nest to the sagging effects of aging. Magnetic, good-humored, and full of hope in the sustaining power of the Spirit. This is a must-read for anyone facing the flux and flow of the forties and beyond. It's a funny read for those who have been through this state of life and survived — a chance to understand that time and your feelings and experiences.
