"A concise, entertaining and humane guide through life's most difficult territory."-Simon Ings, The Spectator "A delightful amalgam of self-help and intellectual inquiry."-The Economist "Written with charming simplicity and wry humor, Midlife is a philosophically rich source of what might be called 'the higher life hacks'. . . . . A work of disarming wisdom."-Jim Holt, author of Why Does the World Exist? "Written with urgency and wit, Midlife has a great mix of philosophy, personal narrative, and practical wisdom. Highly recommended."-Jennifer Michael Hecht, author of Doubt: A History "As someone who has suffered from a midlife crisis since the age of seven, I found Kieran Setiya's Midlife: A Philosophical Guide both instructive and consoling. If it fails to slim the waistline or stave off death, it nevertheless proves, like a trusted spouse or pet, a very companionable guide on the way to the void. It may even make you, as it did me, see the virtue of being forty-two."-Joshua Ferris, author of To Rise Again at a Decent Hour "Midlife teaches a lesson about midlife: it's sometimes best to go with the flow."-Joshua Rothman, New Yorker
Kieran Setiya is professor of philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
