DESCRIPTION :
THERE ARE NO GROWN-UPS. EVERYONE ELSE IS WINGING IT TOO. You know you're a grown-up when...

*You become impatient while scrolling down to your year of birth.

*

You've lost and gained the same 10lbs so many times you now regard it as an old friend.

*

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 know that 'Soul mate' isn't a pre-existing condition. It's earned over time.

Does it ever feel like everyone - except you - is a bona-fide adult? Do you wonder how real grown-ups get to be so mysteriously capable and wise? When she turns 40, Pamela Druckerman - author of the #1 Sunday Times bestseller French Children Don't Throw Food - wonders whether her mind will ever catch up with her face. 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.

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? There Are No Grown-Ups is a midlife coming-of-age story, a hilarious quest for wisdom, self-knowledge and the right pair of pants. It's a book for readers of all ages about - finally - becoming yourself.
