Finding love after 50 is no easy task, but Arlene Schindler's book tackles the dating scene with humor, sexiness and style

Finding love is no easy task, but for those of us over fifty, it's even harder. I'm not in that camp, but I so enjoyed this recent read by humorist, author, performance artist, Arlene Schindler.  

Can A Woman Find True Love After 50?

Check Out The New Novel, “The Last Place She’d Look

Los Angeles CA—Every woman seeks hope and joy, but where can they find it? The Last Place She’d Look, by Arlene Schindler, is an uproarious new novel exploring relationship possibilities for single women at mid-life, with a madcap, defiantly spirited outlook towards love, humiliations and triumphs.

The Last Place She’d Look focuses on Sara a self-help writer who anxiously faces a milestone birthday by compulsively searching for a serious relationship. Meanwhile, friends urge her to “Stop looking for love, just enjoy yourself.” But Sara won’t give up.

 From day spas to dominatrix dungeons, wacky encounters with cheaters, narcissists, and a college fantasy via Facebook, she perseveres with unbridled optimism. Passionate interludes cloud her thinking. Is Sara having a mid-life crisis? Will lots of sex be abundantly fulfilling -- or just create more laundry?  It’s a bit of Bossypants meets 50 Shades of Grey.  As she fervently searches, her funny and sometimes dangerous, amorous adventures take her high, low, and everywhere in between, yet ultimately lead to finding companionship and love in The Last Place She’d Look.

The sex lives of women ages 45-60 are laughably laid bare as former stand-up comedian and magazine writer Arlene Schindler takes a humorous look at boomer babes in the prime of their lives. Her writing explores what’s left unsaid along the edges of conversation, and experience, “Women of a certain age become invisible in our culture. But in reality this is the time of life when they become bolder, braver and more adventurous. They’re peaking, and no one is looking. Exploring why they should be noticed, I expose their desires, passions and relationships.”

Arlene Schindler was a Relationship Expert/Guest Guru for America On-Line’s Love-on-Line, and a writer/editor for WOMAN Magazine and Playgirl. She originated the comedy review column for The New York Post, writing reviews and profiles of comedians appearing in New York City. She’s written for The Los Angeles Times, Daily Variety and Creative Screenwriting. Arlene is a regular on the spoken word circuit in Los Angeles, telling tales of women's secrets and desires; a raucous romp through the hidden lives of  today’s "mature" woman.
