KISS TOMORROW HELLO: Notes from the Midlife Underground by Twenty-Five Women over Forty (2006), co-edited with Kim Barnes

Kiss Tomorrow Hello brings together the experiences and reflections of women as they embark on a new stage of life. The twenty-five stellar writers gathered here explore a wide range of concerns, including keeping love and sex alive, discovering family secrets, negotiating the demands of illness and infertility, letting children go, making peace with parents, and contemplating plastic surgery. The tales are true, the confessions candid, the humor infectious, just what you’d expect from the women whose works represent the best writings of their generation.
