Fran | 1 comments Hi All,
my friend is turning 40 soon and it's not gonna be easy.

I'm after a short book that presents a wise, brilliant short story about a positive attitude about aging. I'm not after the usual ironic stuff: I'm after something heartwarming, intelligent and wise; the equivalent of "The Little Prince" for example :-)

Thank you

Jason Oliver Only thing I can think of is Big Little Lies. one of the main characters is turning 40. The story does not focus on this much but it does show how you can be a mentor to a younger adult and that her life is full of activities and ideas and friendships as well as drama and fights and rage. I
It explores a the 40 year old with her teenage daughter and the void between them but it works out in the end.
