Why We Can't Sleep
Created by GreenwichFiction | 7 items
Ada Calhoun's new book about the anxieties and tribulations facing middle-aged women today has struck a chord with readers. Speaking with women across America about their experiences as the generation raised to "have it all," Calhoun found that most were exhausted, terrified about money, underemployed, and overwhelmed. She opens up the cultural and political contexts of Gen X's predicament and offers solutions for how to pull oneself out of the abyss-and keep the next generation of women from falling in. The result is reassuring, empowering, and essential reading for all middle-aged women, and anyone who hopes to understand them. If you enjoyed the book, some further reading ideas are listed below. She will be at Greenwich Library as part of our AuthorsLive@GreenwichLibrary series on March 31st to discuss the book.
