9780241003183: In Your Prime: How To Age Disgracefully

Humane, witty, wise and full of practical advice: India Knight's guide to ageing is the book every woman has been waiting for. 'Our mothers' fifty is not our fifty. We have no map, no blueprint, no nothing. We have no sense of what is and isn't age-appropriate, or even of whether age-appropriateness is still relevant. We're supposed to be grown-up, but we seldom feel it.' Part guide, part memoir, part manual, in In Your Prime India Knight seeks to provide proper, weighty answers to the questions women are asking themselves now. Covering a wide range of subjects from clothes and cosmetics, being a parent to older children, having older parents and what that entails, and of course, the menopause, In Your Prime is the definitive, much-needed guide to approaching middle age with confidence and panache. India Knight is the author of three previous novels: My Life on a Plate, Don't You Want Me and Comfort and Joy. Her non-fiction books include The Shops, the bestselling diet book Neris and India's Idiot-Proof Diet, the accompanying bestselling cookbook Neris and India's Idiot-Proof Diet Cookbook and The Thrift Book. India is a columnist for the Sunday Times and lives in London with her three children.

Review:

Funny, feisty and invaluable * Good Housekeeping * Refreshingly upfront...What a relief to have sorted out my Christmas list for all my older, wiser and happier girlfriends. Thank you. * Evening Standard * India Knight tackles aging with wit...[reads like] a funny, informative conversation...often made me laugh out loud. -- Kate Kellaway * The Observer * Knight's words feel like you're speaking with that friend who always gives you the best advice...an entertaining and informed read. * Stylist * Knight is tremendously opinionated, but there is something strangely comforting about her robust certainty. Reading her book is like having a conversation with a fearfully bossy but beloved old chum * Daily Mail * Brad Pitt at 50 acts as if he believes the best is yet to come. Women should feel entitled to the same belief and the contents of this book make it seem possible. * The Times * Joyous advice on how to age wisely, happily and with grace. * Prima Magazine * I read India Knight's In Your Prime last week, with an air-punch of solidarity at its acknowledgement of the pleasures of middle age. -- Tracey Thorn * New Statesman * I love India and her no-nonsense, honest and utterly hilarious guide to navigating the post-45 years. -- Marian Keyes * Mail on Sunday * Blissful and unputdownable. -- Nina Stibbe
