Abstract:

Maybe it's when you can't remember exactly where your wife works--or whether she works at all. Or when your children have a more active sex life than you do. Or maybe it's when you start to hear the unspoken thoughts inside other people's heads. Paul Slippery is an anxiety-ridden British doctor suffering from all those symptoms and more. His wife has embarked on a new career and perhaps an extramarital affair or two. His three oversexed sons mock him without mercy. And at work he's tangled in red tape and tormented by a flaky colleague. Forthysomething turns the fears and foibles of middle age into high comedy of the kookiest kind.
