About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
So there you are, participating in street protests against the Vietnam War wearing bell bottoms, a tie-died shirt and playing Joan Baez. Next thing you know, your kids have left the house and you’re opting for chocolate meringue pie over sex.What happened? Random Thoughts of a Menopausal Mind is a poignant yet humorous account of one woman’s attempt to make sense of it all. In roughly two dozen essays collected here, the artist Suzi Pittman Tompkins captures the essence of many women who grew up in the tumultuous sixties, got married, had children, went back to work, and became empty nesters with grandchildren. In these breezy, conversational pieces, Tompkins explores what it means to have come of age in the Age of Aquarius—only to end up sharing more in common with her mother’s generation than she ever expected. From Bob Dylan to Pillsbury’s Already Pie Crusts to Viagra to Facebook, Tompkins has her finger on the pulse of her era’s cultural touchstones to express the real meaning of being a modern woman in America today.Tompkins’ reflections reveal the simple truth that each of our lives has value based upon who we are, not what we have done. Whether you are a menopausal baby boomer, or the daughter of one, you’ll find Random Thoughts worth the read.
