READ BOOK Love and Trouble: A Midlife Reckoning



From the New York Times best-selling author of Poser: My Life in Twenty-Three Yoga Poses, a ferocious, sexy, hilarious memoir about going off the rails at midlife and trying to reconcile the girl she was with the woman she has become.

Claire Dederer is a happily married mother of two, ages nine and 12, when she suddenly finds herself totally despondent and, simultaneously, suffering through a kind of erotic reawakening. This exuberant memoir shifts between her present experience as a middle-aged mom in the grip of mysterious new hungers and herself as a teenager - when she last experienced life with such heightened sensitivity and longing.

From her hilarious chapter titles ("How to Have Sex with Your Husband of Seventeen Years") to her subjects - from the boyfriend she dumped at 14 the moment she learned how to give herself an orgasm, to the girls who ruled her elite private school ("when I left Oberlin I thought I had done with them forever, but it turned out...they also edited all the newspapers and magazines, and wrote all the books"), to raising a teenage daughter herself - Dederer writes with an electrifying blend of wry wit and raw honesty. She exposes herself utterly, and in doing so captures something universal about the experience of being a woman, a daughter, a wife.

Basically, she's a very sexual person, she slept around a lot when she was younger and really enjoyed it and now she's a married, middle aged Mom and feels sad that she no longer gets the amount of male attention that she used toThe graduate students loved her for her compassion and toughness, her intelligence, candor and sense of humor, for her ability to see the world through her own eyes and describe complex experience with uncanny courage.Her second memoir, Love and Trouble, displays all of those virtues, and, whatever Fitzgerald might have meant by there being no second acts in American lives, Dederer disproves that statement with an eloquent, heartbreaking vengeancehereLike T.SShe teaches a class on memoir-writing and reflects that she is the nuttiest person in the roomIt was more a series of observations, stories, and musings rather than a cohesive work that led to any sort of concrete realization or epiphanyShe also hates the boys in her class because they classify all girls & who are even a little bit pretty as class-skipping sluts
