gail passages coverGail Sheehy’s 1976 book PASSAGES had an exciting idea at its core: adulthood is dotted with predictable turning points. Now, after more than 45 years interviewing women and men about their lives, the journalist and best-selling author has turned the lens on herself. Her new memoir, DARING: MY PASSAGES reflects on her career as a trailblazing female journalist in the ’60s, a mother determined to balance work and family, and a caregiver to an ailing husband. Reflecting on desire, ambition, and wanting it all – career, love, children, friends, social significance – and coming to terms with waiting until midlife to achieve it all, Sheehy’s memoir is filled with candor and humor and describes her early failures; the pain of betrayal in a first marriage; her struggles as a single mother; the flings of an ardent, liberated young woman; the vertigo of becoming an internationally bestselling author; her adoption of a second daughter from a refugee camp; the emotional account of her tempestuous relationship with her mentor, her friend, her lover, her husband the founder of New York Magazine Clay Felker, and her ongoing passion for life, work and love. DARING: MY PASSAGES is a testament to guts, resilience, and smarts, and offers a bold perspective on all of life’s passages and the daring that’s gotten Gail Sheehy through it all.
