Have you ever wondered how other women survived their 40's? You'll get an earful in Knowing Pains, an honest, humorous, thoughtful and diverse collection of essays by real women who aren't afraid to tell their age and tell it like it is. Sex, marriage, love, divorce, motherhood, singlehood, passion, obsession. Nothing is off-limits to this startlingly fresh group of new female voices that Molly Rosen has brought together to swap stories and compare notes on the desires, influences and events that have impacted and shaped their midlives. Collectively, they form a true picture of how real women not only survive their 40's, but thrive with dignity, courage and laughter.

The book, Knowing Pains, was developed through the voluntary collaboration of scores of 40-something women, from the writers, editors, graphic designer, illustrator and photographer, to the web hosting and PR support.

These professionals were united in their desire to amplify the collective voice of today's 40-something woman, as well as to raise funds for research and access to care for breast cancer. All net proceeds from book sales will go to a breast cancer non-profit.
