Summary
An intriguing look at life and love in the over-forty lane. Spinsterhood never seemed so sexy or so smart. Autumn Stephens, Editor, Roar Softly and Carry a Great Lipstick In Single Woman of a Certain Age Jane Ganahl assembles a chorus of sophisticated and witty voices for this revealing anthology about flying solo in midlife. Joyce Maynard and Dakota Cassidy try online hookups, Debra Ginsberg brings up the M-word, Cameron Tuttle goes on a date (with herself), Susan Griffin finds joy in solitude, and Rachel Toor finally finds companionship the four-legged kind. Reflecting on the (mostly) ups and (sometimes) downs of women cruising past 40, these writers address the challenges and rewards of growing older as a single woman: sex, loneliness, motherhood, learning to live alone, financial struggles, blossoming careers, menopause, and more. Contributors include April Sinclair, Cameron Tuttle, Spike Gillespie, Laura Fraser, Susan Griffin, Jane Juska, Joyce Maynard, Sunny Singh and more. --Publisher
