The Dark Night of the Shed: Men, the midlife crisis, spirituality - and sheds

Nick Page

2 Reviews

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Christian aspects of sexuality, gender & relations, Men's health, Self-help & personal development, Humour

In his usual characterful style, Nick Page explores the phenomenon of the male midlife crisis, reviewing the options for how to deal with it and concluding, unconventionally, that by meeting it head on it can be a freeing and positive experience, rather than a negative one.

Men, the midlife crisis, spirituality - and sheds.

A new bike - running the marathon - splashing out on a sports car - having an affair - taking up triathlon - upping sticks and moving to the country - getting divorced - even going into the church...

There's a point in a man's life where he looks around him and asks whether this is really where he wants to be - what he wanted to do with his life. And even if he's achieved all his childhood dreams, maybe that's not enough any more.

Nick Page has been there, and he decided to build a shed. Not to answer the question, but so that he'd at least be able to get some peace to think about it properly. Join him on a journey of discovery, into what the midlife crisis really is, and whether there's a better way to go at it than frittering away time and money trying to pretend you're really younger than you are.
