The panic began to set in when Annabelle Gurwitch turned forty-nine. Suddenly, new and pernicious health problems began to plague her, solicitations from the AARP began flooding her mailbox, and a marriage proposal on Twitter was abruptly rescinded when the tweeter caught a glimpse of Gurwitch’s age. A visit to her gynecologist ended not with one of his usual benign send-offs—stay healthy, stay happy, stay hydrated—but instead with the slightly ominous: “Stay … funny.” In this new collection of essays, Gurwitch has taken her gynecologist’s advice to heart. Whether she’s lusting after the young man fixing her computer, navigating the extensive anti-aging offerings in the Barneys beauty department, or negotiating the ins and outs of acceptable behavior with her teenage son, Gurwitch bravely turns an unflinching eye towards the myriad of issues women can expect to encounter in their later years.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A compendium of lighthearted, of-the-moment essays that address the many ups and downs of life at fifty…Gurwitch proves adept at attempting to address and soften readers’ shared concerns about their own age-related changes in appearance with her aggressively personal (some R-rated) deadpan admissions…Casual, zingy observations.”
