NPR Summary

The best-selling author of Bringing Up Bébé charts the largely unexplored realities of being a 40-something in today's world, in a latest collection of laugh-out-loud essays that examines the decade as a milestone less associated with midlife than by the disconnects of social media, the French perspectives about libido and the challenges of raising kids while caring for aging parents.
