In the tradition of the bestselling The Bitch in the House, Kiss Tomorrow Hello brings together the experiences and reflections of women as they embark on a new stage of life. Many women in their forties, fifties, and sixties discover that they are racing uphill, trying desperately to keep their romantic and social lives afloat just as those things they believe constant start to shift and the body begins its inevitable decline, sometimes gracefully, sometimes less so... The twenty-five stellar writers gathered here explore a wide range of concerns, including keeping love (and sex) alive, discovering family secrets, negotiating the demands of illness and infertility, letting children go, making peace with parents, and contemplating plastic surgery. The tales are true, the confessions candid, and the humor infectious - just what you'd expect from the women whose works represent the best writings of their generation. From Lynn Freed's wry "Happy Birthday to Me" to Pam Houston's hilarious "Coffee Dates with a Beefcake," Kiss Tomorrow Hello is a wise, lyrical, and sexy look at the pleasures and perils of midlife.
