Description

Actress and humorist Annabelle Gurwitch returns with I See You Made an Effort, a collection 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 âge 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 - anti-aging 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 50 the new 40? Or is 50 still just...50? 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.
