Read in April, 2009

I picked this book up from a neighborhood garage sale. I wish I could say I bought it from a bookseller because these women writers deserve to earn their royalties.

This is a collection of essays by female authors on their experiences with menopause. I believe it caught my eye because it's a subject on my mind lately. These ladies are frank, sometimes funny and always informative. Being a straight person, it hadn't occurred to me how a lesbian woman might view menopause differently. I am also surprised to learn about how other cultures besides mine, handle this event.

I recommend this one to women wanting to know what to expect and to the men in their lives unsure of what's going on.

Kim It's a collection of essays from female writers about their menopause experiences. For someone like me, just starting down that road, it had a lot to say.

Liane Spicer I bought it used on Amazon, and I also wish it was still in print so the authors could get their royalties. It was interesting and comforting to read about other women's experiences because where I come from people don't discuss this perfectly normal change that all women must go through.
