One Midlife Crisis and a Speedo free pdf 'If you don't choose your midlife crisis, your crisis will choose you.' When Darrel Bristow-Bovey is about to have these words tattooed on his arm in Chinese characters, he suddenly realises his midlife crisis is already under way, and what follows is a witty, warm, sometimes wise journey into the terrors and absurdities (and finally the grudging, grumpy compensations) of middle age that every man and woman of a certain age will recognise. Running a gauntlet of bucket lists, prostate examinations and sexual misadventures, Darrel sets himself a task: to follow in the footsteps of Lord Byron and the Greek hero Hercules and swim across the Dardenelles in Turkey. The only problem is that he's old and lazy and can't swim very well. This book is funny and insightful, and deals with a universal condition with which everyone can identify: the need to make sense of your life. A highly enjoyable read.

About Darrel Bristow-Bovey

Darrel Bristow-Bovey was born on the Bluff in Durban in the shade of a frangipani tree, in a backyard with a red wheelbarrow and white chickens. He has worked as a columnist and travel-writer and briefly as a professional kick-boxer, in which capacity he was unsuccessfully investigated for match-fixing, a story covered in his forthcoming memoir, What I Talk About When I Talk About Bleeding. He wrote the bestselling I Moved Your Cheese in 2001, The Naked Bachelor in 2002 and his collection of columns, But I Digress, is completely unavailable at all good bookstores everywhere. His novel for young readers, SuperZero, was awarded the Sir Percy Fitzpatrick prize for fiction and he was a finalist for the Caine prize for African Writing in 2006. He is also the winner of the PICA Columnist of the Year Award in the customer category for 2013. He has written three feature-films and head-written four drama series and one sit-com for SABC television, winning two SAFTA awards for screen-writing, and is a key creative for Rhythm City, a soap opera on E-TV . Nearly four million people a day watch Rhythm City, and he has yet to meet a single one of them.
