Is Philip Roth the last of his kind?

Speaking of menopause, Sandra Tsing Loh’s review of The Wisdom of Menopause is pretty funny. [The Atlantic]

  1. Not A Crone nor a Bitch says:

    Sandra Tsing Loh’s  did not review the Wisdom in Menapause book.  She just used it as part of her story about her own transition thru menopause. 

    Funny?  I don’t think so.  Predictable? Yes. Sad? Definitely.

    Every year come September, aka Menopause Month , we get some attention seeking woman prepared to disrespect menopausal women in order to sell an article.   Until that stops there is no wisdom in menopause.
