Claire Dederer: Love and Trouble: A Midlife Reckoning

Claire Dederer, author of Poser: My Life in Twenty-Three Yoga Poses, returns with a ferocious, sexy, hilarious memoir about going off the rails at midlife and trying to reconcile the girl she was with the woman she has become. Dederer is a happily married mother of two, ages 9 and 12, when she suddenly finds herself totally despondent and, simultaneously, suffering through a kind of erotic reawakening. In Love and Trouble (Knopf), Dederer exposes herself utterly, and in doing so captures something universal about the experience of being a woman, a daughter, a wife.

“When I got my hands on Claire Dederer’s new book, I instantly turned off my phone, cancelled all my appointments, curled up in bed, and read all day in grateful — and thoughtful — abandon. … Love and Trouble is a book that caused me to think differently about marriage, about intimacy, about middle-age, and especially about what it means to have once been a sexually adventurous teenage girl. I saw myself all over these pages, and a think a lot of other readers will, as well.”–Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love and The Signature of All Things
