There Are No Grown-ups: A Midlife Coming-of-Age Story by Pamela DruckermanThe best-selling author of Bringing Up Bebe investigates life in her forties, and wonders whether her mind will ever catch up with her face.
When Pamela Druckerman turns 40, waiters start calling her Madame, and she detects a disturbing new message in mens gazes: I would sleep with her, but only if doing so required no effort whatsoever.
Yet forty isnt even technically middle-aged anymore. And after a lifetime of being clueless, Druckerman can finally grasp the subtext of conversations, maintain (somewhat) healthy relationships and spot narcissists before they ruin her life.
What are the modern forties, and what do we know once we reach them? What makes someone a grown-up anyway? And why didnt anyone warn us that wed get cellulite on our arms? Part frank memoir, part hilarious investigation of daily life, There Are No Grown-Ups diagnoses the in-between decade when...

- You become impatient while scrolling down to your year of birth.
- Your parents have stopped trying to change you.
- You dont want to be with the cool people anymore; you want to be with your people.
- You realize that everyone is winging it, some just do it more confidently.
- You know that its ok if you dont like jazz.
