In this witty and uplifting book Mylene Desclaux speaks tenderly and honestly about turning 50 and what it means for herself and for the other women in her entourage.

'By the time we're 50, we've generally done all the important things - career, family. Now we can re-centre and discover a new energy within ourselves. It's our time to blossom - we reprogramme gently. We revitalise. We realise that we are the mistresses of our own lives... The desire to do battle disappears. We feel calm. And we know we're going to have time to make the most of it, life being very long...' With acerbic French humour she distils the essence of getting the most out of your middle age and gives advice on everything from:

* Relationships * Sex * Fashion * Dating * Skincare * Friendships * Kids * Beauty

In WHY FRENCH WOMEN FEEL YOUNG AT 50 you will learn how to take pleasure from the simple things in life and how to make the most of your fifties, the Parisian way.

Mylene Desclaux is a blogger and previously worked as a publicist. She lives in Paris and this is her first book. Read her French blog here: http://happyquinqua.com/


In her book, Mylene Desclaux takes a look at the way of life for a new generation of 50-something women, from the distribution of housework to their choice of partner, by way of sexuality or using social media. The book suggests what might be helpful when feelings of sadness, anger or discouragement arise. And we reflect along with Mylene about how best to navigate this upheaval. - Le Parisien
