Produktbeschreibung
A funny, fearless, no-holds-barred look at aging?hormone replacement therapy, online dating, eye lifts, and all As she approached her fiftieth birthday, Tracey Jackson found herself bombarded?at the gym, at parties, in conversations with friends?by a catchphrase on everyone's lips. ?Fifty is the new thirty? and the endless magazine articles, photos, and T-shirts proclaiming the new aphorism had apparently bloomed out of a collective sense of denial, masking the true fears of a generation unwilling to relinquish their youth. With a comedy writer's training and a screenwriter's eye for detail, Jackson skewers the myth in a hilarious, bare-knuckled, and ultimately practical appraisal of what middle age really means today. Turning fifty is a wake-up call?but one that can be greeted with a plan. Between a Rock and a Hot Place navigates, with unsparing honesty and unerring wit, the confusion and uncertainty of the most significant uncharted transition in our lives.
