Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

The author, "finding little of relevance to her life as a young single of the '80s in Gail Sheehy's Passages , set out to chart her own generation's concerns," observed PW . "In her exploration of generational differences, Merser has written a thoughtful, poignant, questioning book."

From Library Journal

After reading Gail Sheehy's Passages, Merser saw not her own life but instead that of her parents. She decided to take a look at growing up as it applies (or doesn't apply) to the baby boom generation. In a light, humorous manner, she examines so-called adult credentials, adult relationships, and the life cycle. The 1950s family is dealt with somewhat harshly, while the sameness of suburban life is described as "weird." This insightful little book will probably interest most of those born between the years 1946 and 1964. For public libraries. Mary L. Kirk, Univ. of North Carolina at Wilmington Lib.
