From the front lines
Life doesn’t end at 40. It just gets really, really weird. In Kissing the Crisis: Field Notes on Foul-Mouthed Babies, Disenchanted Women, and Careening into Middle Age, humorist Kara Martinez Bachman takes on middle age with a kick-a** Generation X attitude and a willingness to try anything. Bachman’s comic essays recount her many absurd adventures in her forties, providing a field guide for women blazing their own unconventional trails through the jungle of middle age.
