3.6/5 Goodreads

In Salthill-on-Hudson, half an hour outside New York, the inhabitants are beautiful, rich and, though they look younger than they really are, middle-aged. When the enigmatic sculptor Adam Berendt dies suddenly, his death sends shock waves through the town. Middle age, ordinarily not a tune for passion or romance, is transformed by his loss as his close friends evaluate their lives and set out to re-define them in startling and original ways. Middle Age is a richly sympathetic yet unsparingly comic view of present-day affluent America from one of the finest writers of contemporary fiction.

"A stylish and wise chronicle of transformation and regeneration" - Jonathan Bate, Sunday Telegraph
"The richness and excitement of Oates' novels lie in their hyper-real description of modern life" - Sunday Times
