TV and radio presenter Kate Garraway has a lot on her mind. She's about to turn 50, which is fine (she thinks) but suddenly she seems to have MANY questions about EVERYTHING.
Should she be getting plastic surgery? Will the menopause ruin her life? What's the secret to making love last? Can anyone really deal with the idea of death? And why, oh why, did nobody tell her how important big knickers would be?!
In this revealing exploration of ageing, Kate tackles the biggest issues faced by women in their supposed 'prime', and searches for answers on their behalf. Drawing on her own experiences and those of others, consulting experts and challenging herself more than she's ever done so before, she tries to find the useful amongst the deluge of advice women are bombarded with as they age.
Written with all the warmth and humour Kate is known for, The Joy of Big Knickers is her amusing journey into the next stage of her life and how she learned to embrace everything it has in store. But above all, it's a lesson on why women in their midlife should be loved and celebrated, especially by themselves...
