Are you going to allow your waist to expand and your mind to narrow without a struggle? You, who marched against war and launched the sexual revolution? You, slip into midlife without so much as a backward glance? No way! This irreverent look at life on the cusp of fifty, from two "boomer babes" who are too old to be young and way too young to be old, is just what you need to stay hip, hot and happy. From kids who won't move out to parents who don't recognize you, from cosmetics to cosmetic surgery, Boomer Babes covers it all. From such mysteries as to how to find Mr. Right (even in the wrong suit) to male menopause (did you ever doubt it?) to how to keep the AARP from finding you (it's impossible) to authors' feisty take on midlife issues will have you redefining, redesigning, and reinventing yourself before you can say "Happy Birthday!"

About the Author:

Linda Stasi has been a columnist for New York Newsday and the New York Daily News. She is currently a columnist for the Village Voice and is a contributing editor to TV's Inside Edition

Rosemary Rogers is a music producer an coauthor of the best-selling book Saints Preserve Us!

From Booklist:

As its title suggests, this "guidebook to staying hip and hot without flipping out" at almost 50 is not politically correct. Stasi is a journalist; Rogers, a music producer (and coauthor of Saints Preserve Us! 1993). Their strength is snappy patter, opening with "Fifty Good Reasons to Turn Fifty" and "Commandments" --10 "for Preserving Babedom"; 10 "for Preventing Old Fartdom." Four chapters focus on finding a man; two on menopause (hers and his); others on work issues, diet, exercise, hair, makeup, cosmetic surgery, children, parents, "Fallen Idols," money, AARP, and celebrating one's fiftieth birthday. This should not be the only advice book for peri-menopausal women on your shelves: the authors often push too hard for laughs, they assume all their readers are heterosexual, and they handle complex medical questions--such as hormone replacement therapy--much too casually. On the other hand, some who would never read Sheehy or Greer will like Stasi and Rogers' sass, so Boomer Babes could be a helpful supplement to more solid books on middle age. Mary Carroll
