Summary:
"In this timely and reflective anthology, the generation that sought to stay forever young reveals that midlife should mean more than jokes about thinning hair, creaking joints, and thickening waistlines. Midlife's insights - whether they be physical, spiritual, or emotional - are indeed startling, and who better than poets to deliver them?"--Jacket.
