Midlife and menopause can be . . . what was I going to say? Oh yeah, they can be challenging times. But there are plenty of reasons to be thankful, too. In this warm and lighthearted book, the incomparable Laura Jensen Walker celebrates life and helps you laugh in the midst of hot flashes and memory loss.
Laura shares hilarious vignettes and words of wisdom from her own experience and those of other women who have been there, are there, or are headed into “mentalpause.” Don’t worry when you find yourself entering “fuddy-duddydom” or suddenly see your mother’s face in the mirror. Turn down the air-conditioning and join Laura for a lot of laughs instead.
Laura Jensen Walker went into early menopause after her bout with cancer and can sympathize with other “mentalpause” sufferers and survivors. As in Thanks for the Mammogram!, she uses hilarious vignettes and a delightful mix of wit and wisdom to connect with her readers. With chapters about how “All Varicose Veins Lead to Rome” and “PMS Is a Picnic in the Park,” this book helps women dealing with “mentalpause” and those around them gain a better understanding–and certainly a lighter attitude–about this passage of life.
Mentalpause and Other Midlife Laughs will get readers laughing at themselves as they hear Laura lightheartedly describe her age spots, lament her sagging everything, and look anew at love after forty.
