One would think that after spending 30 years traveling on business that Malcolm would have thrown in the towel and settled down to a normal, peaceful life. What now appears to be an addiction or an extension of a midlife crisis, he seems hell-bent on traveling to destinations where most people would not consider. Whether it is trekking in the Himalayas, diving with the World’s largest fish, or hanging out in one of the seediest towns in Asia, the quest for adventure continues. Thimphu, Bhutan, Nagarkot, Nepal, and Pattaya, Thailand, are not household names, but that’s the beauty of it all, to go where the general population do not venture. Saying that, soaking up the culture in Turkey’s Istanbul, discovering the way of life in Myanmar’s capital city, and going far away from it all to a sublime remote island in the Maldives, adds to a mixed bag cultural experiences. Explore how Malcolm deals with the physical and social challenges in far off distant lands in an effort to become educated and fulfilled.

The phrase “midlife crisis” today conjures up images of male indulgence and irresponsibility—an affluent, middle-aged man speeding off in a red sports car with a woman half his age—but before it become a gendered cliché, it gained traction as a feminist concept. Journalist Gail Sheehy used the term to describe a midlife period when both men and women might reassess their choices and seek a change in life. Sheehy’s definition challenged the double standard of middle age—where aging is advantageous to men and detrimental to women—by viewing midlife as an opportunity rather than a crisis. Widely popular in the United States and internationally, the term was quickly appropriated by psychological and psychiatric experts and redefined as a male-centered, masculinist concept. The first book-length history of this controversial concept, Susanne Schmidt’s Midlife Crisis recounts the surprising origin story of the midlife debate and traces its movement from popular culture into academia. Schmidt’s engaging narrative telling of the feminist construction—and ensuing antifeminist backlash—of the midlife crisis illuminates a lost legacy of feminist thought, shedding important new light on the history of gender and American social science in the 1970s and beyond.

The Shut-Out Wife: Breaking Through Your Husband’s Midlife Crisis It is an unhappy phenomenon. A once loving husband turns cold and inaccessible. His attitude, behavior and choices—from self-focus and new female “friendships” to confusion and mixed messages, and even infidelity—create a divide between him and his wife, making her feel “shut out” of his life and locked out of her own marriage. In such instances, it is too easy and too common for a woman to get caught up in her husband’s passing midlife storm, one that can end up costing both of them the happy security of their marriage in their later years. Enter Debra Macleod’s The Shut-Out Wife. Drawing on her background as a couples mediator and her “Fair, but Aware” approach, Debra Macleod offers shut-out wives a plainspoken, practical guide to help them break through their husband’s cold front and bring both warmth and dignity back to their lives and marriages.
