The Invisible Woman : Taking on the Vintage Years Paperback / softback


'Stylish and wittily written ... a brilliant read that should encourage us all to challenge the cult of youth, and learn to love ourselves a little more along the way.' My WeeklyThere's nothing middle-of-the-road about middle age.

From coping with bodies that are 'heading south' to rampantageism in the workplace, this time in our lives, in the words of Bette Davis, 'is no place for sissies'. From family, finances and work to cosmetics, fashion and sex, 60-year-old Helen Walmsley-Johnson - the irrepressible voice behind the much-loved Guardian column 'The Vintage Years' - shows, with warmth and a wicked sense of humour, how we can reinvent middle age for the next generation of women.
