Summary

Brilliant and beautifully written, British Vogue contributing editor Christa D'Souza probes what it means to be a contemporary menopausal woman.

There has never been a better time to be a menopausal woman.

Technology is such that 60 really is the new 40 (or even 35).... But for Christa D'Souza, some nagging questions remain: What is the point of us now that we are officially biologically irrelevant? Are hormones safe, even if you've had cancer? Is there a cut-off point for plaits?

In this fabulously confessional romp through the menopause, D'Souza tells us what it was like for her and what it will be like for you. She meets a bunch of menopausal nuns in San Francisco, goes hunter-gathering with the Hadza tribe in Tanzania, interviews experts around the world to get the latest science...and discovers along the way some surprising silver linings to this key milestone of maturity.

The Hot Topic is a treat of an audiobook - liberating, empowering and unexpectedly moving in its truth telling.

Critic reviews

"Christa D'Souza is warm, witty and wise. No woman - or man, come to that - should be without this book." (Cressida Connolly)
"I am on my knees, weeping with gratitude to Christa D'Souza for writing about menopause in a way that doesn't make me want to run screaming for the hills. Finally, a cool look at hot flushes...." (Kate Reardon)
