A refreshingly cheeky guide to middle-aging with grace
The age of forty-and-fated-for-spinsterhood is gone. Just
ask journalist Shane Watson, who met and married Mr. Right
in her mid- forties. Shane assures us that it is never too
late to find love, rekindle your sex life-or do neither and
just be fabulous. In her witty and brilliantly irreverent
guide, she offers advice on handling all things female-and a
much-needed dose of humor for all the forty-plus Bridget
Joneses pondering the big questions like:
•Am I having enough sex?
•Should I wax my moustache?
•Is it just me, or is life getting much, much weirder?
Written in a conversational tone laced with frank and funny
insights, Is It Just Me? is a delightfully acerbic guide to
aging with style and individuality.
