I have an acquaintance, of blood relation actually, who has said of menopausal women that they can be irritable– to which I say, you may have had it coming, dickhead!
Sometimes women of a certain age finally find the courage to say what they’ve been thinking all along. Like these two:
A Reliable Wife, by Robert Goolrick
Olive Kitteridge, by Elizabeth Strout
Both excellent reads.
