I See You Made an Effort: Compliments, Indignities, and Survival Stories from the Edge of 50 (MP3 CD)

Out of Print


Actress and humorist Annabelle Gurwitch returns with "I See You Made an Effort," a book of essays so wickedly funny it may make you forget your last birthday. Not one to shy away from the grisly realities of middle age, the slyly subversive ("O: The Oprah Magazine") Gurwitch confronts the various indignities faced by femmes d un certain age with candor, wit, and a healthy dose of hilarious self-deprecation.

Whether falling in lust at the Genius Bar, navigating the extensive and treacherously expensive antiaging offerings at a department store beauty counter, coping with the assisted suicide of her best friend, negotiating the ins and outs of acceptable behavior with her teenage kid or the thudding financial reality of the never-tirement generation that leads her to petty theft, Gurwitch s essays prove her a remarkably astute writer in her prime (in so many ways). Is this the beginning of the Eileen Fisher years? Where does one conduct an affair with a younger man? Is fifty the new forty? Or is fifty still just fifty?

Scorchingly honest, surreally and riotously funny, "I See You Made an Effort" is the ultimate coming-of-middle-age story and a must listen for women of all ages.
