There Will Be Lobster: Memoir of a Midlife Crisis
You know her. You’ve seen her. You may even see yourself in her.
A dying rock star. A tail-less cat. A psychic who said the spirit world wasn’t interested in her. Mix in an ex-monk, an eighteen-pound tumor, raging teenage children, cancer, and a whole lot of self-pity and you’ll find yourself in the middle of this midlife crisis.
This memoir follows a successful middle-aged woman who sometimes drinks too much, has unfulfilling sex, pities herself for being divorced and alone, loses her business along with her self-esteem, and lacks the gratitude to be thankful for the many good things in her life—all in the face of a cancer diagnosis. It’s funny because it’s true. It’s sad because it’s true. But in the end, there will be lobster for brunch, so bring your bib because middle age gets really messy.
