Description

Actress and humorist Annabelle Gurwitch returns with I See You Made an Effort, a book of essays so wickedly funny it may
make you forget your last birthday. Not one to shy away from the grisly realities of middle age, the “slyly subversive”
(O, The Oprah Magazine) Gurwitch confronts the various indignities faced by femmes d’un certain age with candor, wit,
and a healthy dose of hilarious self-deprecation.

Whether falling in lust at the Genius bar, navigating the extensive—and treacherously expensive—anti aging offerings at
a department-store beauty counter, coping with the assisted suicide of her best friend, negotiating the ins and outs of
acceptable behavior with her teenage kid, or the thudding financial reality of the “never-tirement” generation that
leads her to petty theft, Gurwitch’s essays prove her a remarkably astute writer in her prime (in so many ways). Is this
the beginning of the Eileen Fisher years? Where does one conduct an affair with a younger man? Is 50 the new 40? Or is
50 still just…50?

Scorchingly honest, surreally and riotously funny, I See You Made an Effort is the ultimate coming-of-middle-age story
and a must-read for women of all ages. Reading glasses not included.
