Middle-Aged Boys & Girls

by Diane Bracuk

eBook

0 of 1 copy available

We all know adults who are stranded in the amber of adolescence. Growing older but not necessarily growing up is the central theme ofMiddle-Aged Boys & Girls, featuring characters who, to varying degrees, are stuck in adolescent roles of rebel, outcast, enfant terrible and cool kid. All are linked by losses—of looks, of status, of job security, of health, of confidence—which forces them to life's inevitable turning point. Given that we are living in an age where fifty is the new forty, and forty is the new thirty, and twenty is the new god-knows-what, these stories, with their sometimes painful, sometimes funny and always unflinching truths, resonate.
