Product description


'The Invisible Woman always speaks to me, and for me. It's about saying up yours to the cult of youth, but also about seeing the life of the 50+ as hilariously funny (not unlike the life of the 15 year old, when you come to think about it).' -- Mary Beard 'We love the way Helen writes. She tells it as it is because she KNOWS how it is. At Gransnet we constantly battle against the misconceptions and prejudices around ageing. We are delighted that Helen is helping to set the record straight and embrace her philosophies wholeheartedly and with gusto.' -- Gransnet 'The Invisible Woman in The Vintage Years reminds us that style and wit begin in youth but are mastered in middle-age. You can roundly stick your 20's. Hers is a voice for proper grown-ups not yet ready to come down, and I'm in.' -- Alison Moyet 'Stylish and wittily written, it's a brilliant read that should encourage us all to challenge the cult of youth, and learn to love ourselves a little more along the way.' * My Weekly * 'The Invisible Woman remains a warm, companionable book with a tart aftertaste.' * Guardian * 'I immediately wanted to give it to someone in their early 40s to say "Look! this next bit can be challenging but it's also great fun!" Written in her funny and frank style it's a joy and full of properly useful words of wisdom.' * The Women's Room * 'Helen Walmsley-Johnson has a gift for writing, and she tells it like it is with great humour ... I urge you to buy it for yourself and give a copy to all your fifty-something friends!' * The Good Book Guide * 'A funny look at those of a certain age who are fed up with being overlooked.' * Good Housekeeping *

About the Author

Helen Walmsley-Johnson is the author of the Guardian’s ‘The Vintage Years’ column, which has 65,000 regular readers. Now 58, Helen relocated to London aged 45, worked for Cameron Mackintosh and the Telegraph, before joining the Guardian as Alan Rusbridger’s PA for seven years. She is a passionate believer that there’s nothing middle-of-the-road about being middle-aged.
