Item Details

In "Single Woman of a Certain Age, Jane Ganahl assembles a chorus of sophisticated, edgy, and humorous voices who tackle the topic of being unmarried and in one's prime. Chronicling the (mostly) ups and (sometimes) downs of the chronically 39, these writers address the challenges and rewards of growing older as a single woman: sex, loneliness, motherhood, learning to live alone (and happily), financial struggles or blossoming careers, menopause, and more. With infectious humor and emotional honesty, these essays show how women learn to come into their own, bucking the realities of how society treats the older female who's alone. Swinging between desperation and optimism, bad moods and good grace, the 25 contributions here range from the mild to the wild, the glamorous to the mundane, each expressing the gifts and travails of going solo, whether chosen or forced.
