內容簡介

暢銷書《為什麼法國媽媽可以優雅喝咖啡,孩子不哭鬧》作者最新力作

面臨中年生活,四十不惑可以真的不惑嗎?

 

當作者Pamela Druckerman邁入40歲時,服務生開始稱呼她為「女士」,而她也開始從路上男性的目光偵測到一些訊息:我可以跟她上床,前提是不需要花費任何力氣。

然而現代的40歲甚至不該稱為中年人。在經歷毫無頭緒的漫長人生,一點一滴發現各種線索,Druckerman終於理解人生中的弦外之音,維持(稍微)健康的人際關係,快速察覺哪些人是自戀狂以避免毀掉她的人生。

什麼是「現代中年」,而當接近時我們又認清了哪些事實?究竟什麼可使人「長大成人」?為什麼沒有人警告我們手臂會開始出現掰掰袖和惱人的橘皮?這是本部分真實自傳,部分嘲諷人生的幽默作品,想診斷自己是否距離中年越來越近,你會發現

你遇到的每個人好像都有點面熟

你懶得打理下巴上的汗毛

你不再穿上任何具諷刺意義的服裝

家庭醫生嚴格禁止一項運動

為了填線上表格的年齡欄位,你會一邊不耐煩一邊滾動滑鼠

你的父母已經放棄改變你

你再也不想跟很酷的人來往;你只想跟適合你的人交際

你理解每個人對任何事都有抱怨,只是有些人表現的比較甘願些

你發現即使不喜歡爵士樂也不會天崩地裂

 

暢銷書作者Pamela Druckerman帶領所有即將面臨中年且尚未完全長大的你我,追求人生的智慧、自知之明和選擇一條對的褲子。以詼諧的內容,探索中年人如何成人的挑戰與祕訣。


The best-selling author of BRINGING UP BÉBÉ investigates life in her forties, and wonders whether her mind will ever catch up with her face.

When Pamela Druckerman turns 40, waiters start calling her "Madame," and she detects a disturbing new message in mens' gazes: I would sleep with her, but only if doing so required no effort whatsoever.
 
Yet forty isn't even technically middle-aged anymore. And after a lifetime of being clueless, Druckerman can finally grasp the subtext of conversations, maintain (somewhat) healthy relationships and spot narcissists before they ruin her life.

What are the modern forties, and what do we know once we reach them? What makes someone a "grown-up" anyway? And why didn't anyone warn us that we'd get cellulite on our arms? Part frank memoir, part hilarious investigation of daily life, There Are No Grown-Ups diagnoses the in-between decade when...

●Everyone you meet looks a little bit familiar.
●You're matter-of-fact about chin hair.
●You can no longer wear anything ironically.
●There's at least one sport your doctor forbids you to play.
●You become impatient while scrolling down to your year of birth.
●Your parents have stopped trying to change you.
●You don't want to be with the cool people anymore; you want to be with your people.
●You realize that everyone is winging it, some just do it more confidently.
●You know that it's ok if you don't like jazz.

Internationally best-selling author and New York Times contributor Pamela Druckerman leads us on a quest for wisdom, self-knowledge and the right pair of pants. A witty dispatch from the front lines of the forties, There Are No Grown-ups is a (midlife) coming-of-age story, and a book for anyone trying to find their place in the world.
