MESSAGES FROM MIDDLE AGE
We’re not getting younger, fitter or prettier. Our options, our opportunities to start afresh are dwindling. Families get on our nerves and daily life can be a genuine challenge. Regardless of whether we procrastinate happily from one day to the next, work through endless to-do lists or get stressed out trying to relax and keep healthy, Till Raether’s writing soothes the soul.
Clever, warm-hearted and with an endearing self-ironic tone, Raether explores the big and small problems that keep us awake at night. Without offering clichéd advice, his writing helps us feel a little less lonely, a little more satisfied and, ultimately, take ourselves a bit less seriously.
