Nora Ephron meets Bridget Jones's Diary in Guardian columnist Stella Grey’s heartrendingly honest, witty memoir about her online odyssey to find real love in a virtual world. “The literary equivalent of the When Harry Met Sally line, ‘tell me I’ll never be out there again’.”—JoJo Moyes, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Me Before You Singers may croon about love being lovelier the second time around, but it can also be far more complicated. When Stella Grey’s husband leaves her for another woman, she fears she'll be unhappy and alone for the rest of her life. But daytime vodka-drinking and ice-cream are only short-term consolations. Realizing that she needs to take her future into her own hands, Stella dives into the world of online dating. What follow are 693 days of hilarious, depressing, and baffling encounters that unfold both in person and online. Stella quickly discovers that the more perfect a man appears on her screen, the warier she should be. It's a game of chance, with some players perfectly willing to lie to get what they want, whether that’s a lifetime of love or a very brief encounter. Amid flirty emails, Skype chats, and awkward small talk over glasses of bad wine (which may or may not lead to awkward sex), Stella struggles to remain optimistic. To succeed, does she have to redefine the kind of man she’s looking for—or change the kind of woman she is? Funny, raw, and heartwarming, this book is a brutally honest account of the world of online dating—a world which so many of us are a part of, no matter our age—drawn from Stella’s hugely popular Guardian column, “Mid-life Ex-Wife” (and expanded with new material) about her search for a second chance at love.

After twenty, thirty, or even forty years of marriage, countless vacations together, raising well-adjusted children, and sharing property and finances—what could go wrong? Gray Divorce offers a provocative look at the growing rate of marital splits after the age of 50, showcasing the voices of men and women who are considering, going through, or have undergone one. With empathy and insight, Jocelyn Crowley, who has written widely on family issues, uncovers the reasons for why men and women divorce—and the penalties and benefits that each pay for their choice. From the outside, many may ask why couples in mid-life and readying for retirement choose to make a drastic change in their marital status. Yet nearly 1 out of every 4 divorces is “gray.” Crowley sheds light on why divorce occurs—seeing marriage in a different lens, understanding the seismic shift in individual priorities, and the impact of the increase in life expectancy. With a deft eye, she analyzes the experiences of women and men as they go through this life transition—specifically how women are affected economically while men are affected socially. With a realistic yet passionate voice, Crowley shares the personal positive outlooks and the necessary supportive public policies that must take place to best help new divorcees. Engaging and instructive, Gray Divorce is a must-read for anyone interested in contemporary American culture.

"Those of us in our forties and fifties came of age in the 1960s and 1970s--a time when the available commentary on gay life was anything but supportive. Until 1973, homosexuality was a diagnosable mental illness." --from the Introduction by Alan L. Ellis Today, that literary blindness is being remedied. Take an in-depth look into the lives of 15 gay men and how they relate to their own aging with Gay Men at Midlife: Age Before Beauty, a fascinating new book that explores and clarifies the issues that confront gay men as they age. What happens to gay men's lives when they reach middle age? The essays in Gay Men at Midlife: Age Before Beauty offer a realistic picture of both the challenges and the joys that present themselves in the lives of gay men at midlife. The book does not gloss over the difficulties of the experience; you will truly come to understand that each gay man is not alone in confronting the pain and mourning that may accompany middle age. The people who frankly, openly, and intelligently discuss their personal lives in Gay Men at Midlife: Age Before Beauty include: psychotherapist/popular columnist Tom Moon (San Francisco, California) professor of philosophy and literature Alejandro Medina-Bermudez (Madrid, Spain) television executive George Pierson (Bethesda, Maryland) multimedia artist Trevor Southey (born in the country now known as Zimbabwe, currently working in San Francisco) activist/researcher Frank Wong (New York) . . . plus 10 more individuals from varying backgrounds! Gay Men at Midlife: Age Before Beauty provides a look at how these individuals are redefining the stereotypes of aging gay men and empowering themselves to find meaning and purpose in the second half of their lives.

With common sense and good humor, Richard Olsen examines both the "outer journeys" and the "inner journeys", making clear throughout that the middle third of peoples' lives--the thirties, forties and fifties--is not the time to bemoan the past but rather to celebrate all that is around us. Olsen points out how readers can use the maturity of midlife to strengthen their personal relationships, maintain and increase their health, and reevaluate their vocational and career goals.

Tessa Sanders is a modern-day Calamity Jane. After ten miserable years married to horrid Rupert, Tessa finally decides to leave him. Her exit is made possible following a chance meeting with Major Adam Parker-Hurst, the golf club captain. The major offers her and her five-year-old twin sons, Sam and Freddy, a place to stay at his magnificent country house, Manorbier Estate. Thinking that marriage is eventually on the cards, Tess is miffed to find out that she’s not the only lodger at the house. Simon, a corporal in the local Territorial Army is also a guest, or so it seems; the relationship between the senior officer and his subordinate appears to be a bit too friendly for her liking! To make matters worse, Rupert becomes more of a burden now she’s left him than he ever was when they were together! Put into the pot, her dithery mother and Tess is slowly being torn apart with everything that’s going on! And all this is performed in front of the boys who provided such an innocent background to the entire saga it makes her cry! But when she’d finally managed to get herself on an even keel, even the rivers of tears she’d shed over the boys didn’t compare to what happened in the end. It was the saddest part of her entire life; it was tragic. The reader is taken on a hilarious and very witty roller-coaster ride that exudes a calamity of heartache, agonising sorrow, stupidity, naivety, sleaze, chance, and unbelievable romance; the incredible journey seasoned with large servings of humiliation and disappointment along the way.
