Summary
"When Claire Dederer turned forty-four she began to have what she describes as "a lot of extremely inconvenient feelings" -- feelings of recklessness, of impatience, along with a kind of voluptuous erotic reawakening. After the wildness of youth, and the bliss and captivity of motherhood, she experienced at midlife a sudden yearning for jailbreak. Love and Trouble shifts between her present experiences as a middle-aged mom in the grip of unruly and mysterious new hungers, and her recollection of herself as a teenager--the last time she experienced life with such heightened sensitivity and longing ... Dederer captures the perils and pleasures of girlhood, womanhood, and life itself."--Dust jacket flap
