Summary

Summary

Kiss Tomorrow Hello brings together the experiences and reflections of women as they embark on a new stage of life. The twenty-five stellar writers gathered here explore a wide range of concerns, including keeping love and sex alive, discovering family secrets, negotiating the demands of illness and infertility, letting children go, making peace with parents, and contemplating plastic surgery. The tales are true, the confessions candid, the humor infectious.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A diverse and satisfying mixture of midlife stories…What unites these new essays is their vivid honesty, capturing universal truths and personal experiences in sparkling prose.” Library Journal
“Those heading toward middle age will find stories that will make them laugh, cry, and think. There’s a full cast of unnamed readers who are quite good and add something to each essay. A wonderful book.” Library Journal
“Countering the popular wisdom that a woman’s life ends at 35, this volume insists that your 40s and 50s are fabulous…Like a visit with very honest, very smart friends.” Kirkus Reviews
“The brutal, bare-all confessions and melancholic remembrances…are delivered flawlessly in voices ranging from sadness to sarcasm, denial, and acceptance. What is remarkable is the way the varied voices—intimate, conspiratorial, totally authentic, natural, and honest—blend into a presentation of shared sisterhood. Middle-aged women won’t want to miss this.” AudioFile
