50: A Novel
Approaching the very middle of middle age, Doug Gardner finds that life still holds plenty of surprises on the other side of the hill
Doug Gardner isn’t afraid of aging. In a way, he and his friends have been looking forward to fifty. It’s a milestone from which they can look back and survey all their hard work and success. And Doug has been successful, with a career as a respected sports writer, nice children, and even a little time for fun in his hometown of New York City. But when his ex-wife marries a millionaire—just the first in a series of unexpected discoveries—the value of Doug’s past decisions is called into question. Heartfelt, poignant, and witty, 50 celebrates middle age and life lived—and still to be lived—with no clear roadmap. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Avery Corman, including rare images from the author’s personal collection.
