Summary
Druckerman asserts that there are stages to becoming a grown-up: First, you definitely aren't one. Then you pretend to be one. Then you are sure that there are no grown-ups. And then finally, maybe one day in your forties, you just are one. It's not all-knowing, omnipotent and large; it's humble, solid and small. But at long last, it feels like you. And you think, just then, that this is the best age of all. Explore the challenges of being fortysomething, of raising kids while caring for aging parents, realizing that "soul mate" is a title earned over time, and hope to finally merge your aspirational and actual selves
Summary
The best-selling author of Bringing Up Bebe charts the largely unexplored realities of being a 40-something in today's world, in a latest collection of laugh-out-loud essays that examines the decade as a milestone less associated with midlife than by the disconnects of social media, the French perspectives about libido and the challenges of raising kids while caring for aging parents
