The literature of the mid-life crisis

I find it very hard to get excited about the slew of books concerning the mid-life crises of various women. The Independent analyses this phenomenon.

Apparently, the term ‘mid-life crisis’ was invented by Canadian psychoanalyst Elliot Jacques in 1965 who probably never thought millions of women would be reading Eat Pray Love 45 years later. I like the look of this book Fly Fishing Through the Midlife Crisis by Howell Raines.
