Why We Can’t Sleep by Ada Calhoun investigates the plight of the middle-class women of generation X. She claims that they are under unique pressure.

In Why We Can’tt, Calhoun opens up “the cultural and political context of the predicament of Gen X,” said a critic at goodreads.com.


Curtis Sittenfeld said in a review for The New York Times that Why We Can’t Sleep “stemmed from an O Magazine article that went viral, so maybe it’s easy to say it reads like a book that came out of a article. ”

Calhoun ‘alternates quote statistics and studies; interviewing experts and an assortment of Gen X women, “said Sittenfeld.

“Writing this book has cured my midlife crisis,” Calhoun reveals heartwarming towards the end.

“The recommendations she makes based on her research and personal experience: get off your phone and away from social media. Watch out for your health, but don’t be too strict on yourself and remember that sometimes feeling miserable is normal. Join or form a club with other women, “Sittenfeld added.
