All of us are familiar with the fairy tales of youth where the young hero and heroine fall in love, defeat their enemies, marry, and live happily ever after. The fairy tales gathered here are about what happens next, when the Prince goes bald and the Princess has a midlife crisis. They portray middle-aged men and women facing the special issues dealing with crisis, aging and mortality, and the desire for renewal. Listeners will find that many midlife problems they thought were unique to our time are, in fact, timeless, and that their ultimate resolutions as described in these stories guide us through the peaks and valleys of midlife.
