GAIL SHEEHY HAS BROKEN THE LAST TABOO
All women face menopause, but, as Gail Sheehy compellingly reveals in interviews with from a broad spectrum of different backgrounds, the passage is seldom easy. Distracting symptoms, confusing medical advice, unsympathetic reactions from loved ones, and scornful attitudes of society often make menopause a lonely and distressing experience.
Sheehy brings together the latest information and assesses women's options and risks. She writes frankly about her own experiences, and more importantly she plays back the words of numerous women who have talked to her about how they have coped and what they think of the treatments they have tried.
Myth-shattering, funny and vibrant, this is a book of candour and hope that places menopause in the cycle of life as the gateway to a second adulthood and post-menopausal zest.
Includes interviews with
Fay Weldon, Kate O'Mara, Edwina Currie, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Eve Pollard, Antonia Fraser
