Amy Cohen always imagined that by age thirty she would be juggling a thriving career, a devoted English husband, and two adorable children who had shag haircuts and a room in their loft where they could play the drums. But at thirty-five, as she struggled to come to terms with the loss of her adored mother, she found herself “between jobs” (she’d been fired), “between boyfriends” (she’d been dumped), and “between apartments.” 

Amy felt as if her life was behind schedule...way behind. The more time passed, the more difficult it became for her to believe that she would ever come into her own. The only thing that made her feel hopeful–and even determined–was the idea that she might be a Late Bloomer. She kept telling herself that things would change, that everything would happen for her, just not in the time she expected.

As it turns out, she was right. Fresh, funny, and above all, real, THE LATE BLOOMER’S REVOLUTION is an irresistible memoir, and the perfect audiobook for anyone who hopes, as George Eliot so perfectly put it, that “it’s never too late to be what you might have been.”

    " I also read this book during a blackout so I am not sure if it kept my attention because I actually liked it, or if I was just reading to keep from spiraling into insanity. In the end, this book left me less than encouraged and unmotivated and feeling dreary. Maybe because I also happen to be a single girl in NYC and possibly the seemingly-neverending darkness had consumed my mood, but I had to pick up a more uplifting book that would entertain me to brighten my mood.

    " cohen writes about love (or lack of it) as a thirty-something writer in manhattan. there are parts of this that are laugh out loud hilarious! i just kept picturing the conversations with her father in my head and couldn't help but compare them to moises and siani (once she grows up). a sometimes serious book, cohen reveals how her mother's death affected her life and, more importantly, her thoughts on marriage. her mother wisely told her, "people that want to be married are married." cohen writes about how her mother's words resonant with her as she comes to terms with living a single life. a good read. highly recommended for people that have had a relationship that should have ended much sooner than it did.
