From the best-selling authors of How to be Parisian, this book delivers the things smart, savvy, fabulous French women think, feel and advise as they hit 40--on life, love and everything else.

Older, but Better, but Older has the playful wit, self deprecation and worldly advice we have come to expect from these best-selling authors, but now it is focused on the French woman's mindset as she hurtles towards 40. Caroline de Maigret and Sophie Mas are back to amuse you with how they find they are modifying their favorite bad girl behavior as they advise on beauty, love, seduction as well as lifestyle, family, work and living alone.

They are still bohemian iconoclasts saying what you don't expect to hear. They will tell you things aren't what they used to be--When a thirty-year-old guy arrives at a party and does not even glance at you; when you wake up feeling great and everyone tells you how tired you look; you know you're an adult when you're excited just to go home.

Neuroses vs confidence, resistance vs acceptance, passion vs serenity, de Maigret and Mas, through spirited short stories, capture the different stages of ageing--as nostalgic but modern Parisian women. From the privately absurd to the strangely universal, this book captures moments of everyday life that will make the reader nod, cringe and laugh out loud.
