Survival Stories from the Edge of 50

Actress and humorist Annabelle Gurwitch confronts the various indignities faced women of a certain age. She discusses the anti-aging offerings at a department-store beauty counter, coping with the assisted suicide of her best friend, negotiating the ins and outs of acceptable behavior with her teenager, and the reality that she’ll probably never be able to afford to retire in her book of essays, I See You Made and Effort: Compliments, Indignities, and Survival Stories from the Edge of 50.
