This collection of solicited essays by 32 women over fifty-- none remotely old--has both the good and bad aspects of Sunday brunch at a Park Avenue penthouse.. The contributors all write and talk well, are polite, sometimes amusing-- and careful not to make waves.
Any of these essays would have done nicely in a women's magazine. Not a one catches the throat, or opens the mind. Maybe thirty-year olds will find it of interest. This 80+ reader was bored.
