38 Special

Raised by WASPs, Judy wonders who would ever feel empathy for her struggles. After all, they are self-created, aren’t they? Her therapist tells her to just “buck up”—after all, she’s rapidly approaching 40. But how can Judy explain that she had never planned on living past 34 and these extra four years have added even more conflict to her seemingly overly complicated life. Isolated and alone, while surrounded by numerous family and friends, Judy meanders through issues of sexuality, self-identity, and the true meaning of love. A fantastic coming of age story . . . except that Judy’s almost 40.
