In this collection of essays, award-winning humorist Diana Estill shares her wacky views on the years between mini-skirts and “Mee-maw” panties, tells the truth about “shapewear,” and offers advice on “how to talk so that your spouse will listen” and other mysteries.
Lamenting she’s “put up with this thong enough,” Estill invokes her inner fashion critic as she tackles midlife with both eyes squinted.
From the reviewers:
Sometime around 50 you realize you’ve said goodbye to your youth and hello to world of bodyshapers, random hair growth and senior specials – whether you want them or not. You can spiral into a funk or you can laugh. Stilettos No More helps you laugh, and laugh and laugh! – Jamie Engle
Funny, Down to Earth and Engaging. … a funny, down to earth commentary on the realities of aging. It’s not easy facing the physical changes that occur, without permission I might add, to our bodies when middle age and menopause invade, but Estill faces these occurrences with a wicked wit that any woman will identify with (if not openly then secretly) and embrace. – Judi C.
Diana’s books never disappoint! How she takes everyday dramas and turns them into a comedy reflects her real talent as a writer. You can read the book in one sitting or you can savor the chapters, laughing and enjoying your time with Didi one page at a time. – D.S. Weisman
Who’s afraid of Menopause? Not this author. She greets it with tongue-in-cheek humor the borders on total truth. Why DID we ruin our toes and feet to prance around in pointy toed shoes with killer high heels? I find her humor appealing on every level. I see my aging self in so many of the books scenarios. Her humor gives me hope that in aging not all is lost if you can still laugh at life. – J.E. Bodi
