Today's forty-somethings have never had it so good - or so confusing. While our parents could look forward to a sensible middle age, we're more likely to be playing our Morrissey records and thanking God Jonathan Ross is on Radio 2. There are so many different ways of being in our forties. Where are we supposed to go next, and just how grumpy are we meant to be?Encompassing everything from music, fashion, film and books to family, work, sex and travel, "Forty-fied" is the hilariously wry and observant essential guide to this complex decade in our lives.For anyone forty and fabulous, or who's forty and owns ten fleeces, this is the laugh-out-loud funny book of your dreams...and no doubt your screams, too.
