Christee Gabour Atwood

On January 1, Christee Gabour Atwood, a forty-something author, comedienne, and animal lover resolved to write daily in her journal. And she kept her promise, writing (almost) every day, faithfully recording her journey into something terrifying, something taboo: Midlife. Overcoming the indignity of being called by a strapping college boy, smiling bravely through conversations with matrons aghast that she and her husband never particularly cared to have children she tells one horrified dinner guest), and enduring the first appearance of wrinkles, Atwood hilariously comments on all the reasons to have a midlife crisis and why to cherish every moment of a life well-lived. 166 pages
