Summary
There are no grown-ups. Everyone else is winging it too. Does it ever feel like everyone - except you - is a bona-fide adult? Do you wonder how real grown-ups get to be so mysteriously capable and wise? When she turns 40, Pamela Druckerman wonders whether her mind will ever catch up with her face. With frank personal stories and witty maxims, Druckerman hilariously navigates the unexplored zone between young and not-so-young. There Are No Grown-Ups is a midlife coming-of-age story, a quest for wisdom, self-knowledge and the right pair of pants. It's a book for readers of all ages about - finally - becoming yourself. ou know you're in your forties when... You're matter-of-fact about chin hair. You become impatient while scrolling down to your year of birth. Your parents have stopped trying to change you. You don't want to be with the cool people anymore; you want to be with your people. You know that 'Soul mate' isn't a pre-existing condition. It's earned over time. You know there are no grown-ups. Everyone is winging it, some just do it more confidently
Summary
The best-selling author of Bringing Up Bebe charts the largely unexplored realities of being a 40-something in today's world, in a latest collection of laugh-out-loud essays that examines the decade as a milestone less associated with midlife than by the disconnects of social media, the French perspectives about libido and the challenges of raising kids while caring for aging parents
