Actress and humorist Annabelle Gurwitch returns with "I See You
Made an Effort," a book of essays so wickedly funny it may make you
forget your last birthday. Not one to shy away from the grisly
realities of middle age, the ?slyly subversive? ("O: The Oprah
Magazine") Gurwitch confronts the various indignities faced by
femmes d?un certain ?ge with candor, wit, and a healthy dose of
Whether falling in lust at the Genius Bar, navigating the
extensive?and treacherously expensive?antiaging offerings at a
department store beauty counter, coping with the assisted suicide
of her best friend, negotiating the ins and outs of acceptable
behavior with her teenage kid or the thudding financial reality of
the ?never-tirement? generation that leads her to petty theft,
Gurwitch's essays prove her a remarkably astute writer in her prime
(in so many ways). Is this the beginning of the Eileen Fisher
years? Where does one conduct an affair with a younger man? Is
fifty the new forty? Or is fifty still just?fifty?
Scorchingly honest, surreally and riotously funny, "I See You
Made an Effort" is the ultimate coming-of-middle-age story and a
must listen for women of all ages.
