Have you ever wondered how other women survived their 40s? You’ll get an earful in Knowing Pains, an honest, humorous, thoughtful and diverse collection of essays by real women who aren’t afraid to tell their age and tell it like it is. Sex, marriage, love, divorce, motherhood, singlehood, passion, obsession. Nothing is off-limits to this startlingly fresh group of new female voices that Molly Rosen has brought together to swap stories and compare notes on the desires, influences and events that have impacted and shaped their midlives. Collectively, they form a true picture of how real women not only survive their 40s, but thrive with dignity, courage and laughter.
