By the thirties, you’re supposed to have your relationship, your home, your job, go on your vacations. It doesn’t always work that way.
—Jennifer, 39, Chicago, IL
In the spirit of Stud Terkel’s Working and Michael Apted’s “7 Up” documentary series, Surviving Your Thirties provides a fascinating look at the experience of American thirty-somethings—in their own words. Based on award-winning journalist Robin Madell’s experience as founder and facilitator of the Life After 30 Salon in New York and San Francisco, as well as her interviews with hundreds of people in their thirties across the United States, here you’ll get inside the minds of thirty-somethings nationwide as they explore the hopes and challenges of middle adulthood. Through uncensored voices, the true stories of daily reality in Surviving Your Thirties zero in on what’s most essential to people in their thirties today, helping adults of all ages make sense of their own path through the decade and move more smoothly into later years.
