The midlife crisis hits at age 30 in this have-it-all, do-it-all, got-it-covered, but not, Generation X memoir. Jessica has it all: handsome husband, wealth, good job at the top of her field, and youth. It is not enough, and her job will probably end soon. She is bored with her life and her...

  Night time here is my favorite time of the day. The  slow pace of life punctuated by the occasional honking of the horn and the sun melting me into a human puddle gets replaced by a nearly dead quiet. Sometimes a car passes by but usually the only sounds I here are from friends sitting...
