Like the heart-to-heart conversations you share with your funniest, most honest, most unshockable woman friend, What It’s Like to Live Now reveals the intimate details of a singular life as it is lived by a member of a singular generation. In 1968 Meredith Maran was expelled from high school for leading protests against the Vietnam War. An active member of he generation that pledged to change the world, end injustice, and stay young forever she is now (despite all expectations to the contrary) forty-and-counting with an ex-husband, two teenage sons, and a mortgage on her dream house at the edge of the Oakland ghetto, which she shares with her love Ann. Her book poignantly explores the gap between the dreams of the sixties and the realities of the nineties — and reminds us that even as youthful idealism goes gray at the temples, life can be lived with love, commitment, and integrity.
