Sixty is the new 40, we're constantly told. Or is it that 70 is the new 50? Either way, there's nothing middle of the road about middle age. From coping with bodies that are 'heading south' to rampant ageism in the workplace, this time in our lives, in the words of Bette Davis, is 'no place for sissies'.
From the irrepressible voice behind the much-loved Guardian column 'The Vintage Years' comes a clarion call for any woman who neither wants to be told constantly to look younger nor is ready to join the 'cardigan and slippers brigade'.
From family, finances and work to cosmetics, fashion and sex, 59-year-old journalist Helen Walmsley-Johnson shows how we can reinvent middle age for the next generation of women.
Full of wit and vitality, The Invisible Woman is a new sort of book about ageing: one that teaches us not how to avoid it but how to enjoy it, grow with it, and thrive. Invisibility is not an option!
