BUY There Will Be Lobster: Memoir Of A Midlife Crisis

Hello friends and welcome to The Midlife. My interview today is with Sara Arnell. Working at Vanity Fair in her mid-twenties marked the beginning of Sara’s impressive thirty-year career in fashion, writing, and advertising. One of the biggest lessons she learned in her thirty-years is that in advertising, appearances can be deceiving, and Sara was good at showing people only what she wanted them to see. Behind her facade of happiness and success, she morphed into a divorced, sad, lonely, anxious, self-medicating, empty-nesting, middle-aged mess.

In her new book, There Will Be Lobster: Memoir of a Midlife Crisis, Sara offers a look into her personal struggles and how it took a rogue lobster,  dying rock star, an eighteen-pound tumor, a meditation guru, a famous medium, and a former monk to put her on the path towards light, hope, and healing.

It was a pleasure to have Sara on The Midlife. We talk about her highly introspective and entertaining book and how while everyone’s midlife crisis may manifest differently, we are all fighting similar battles. 

Enjoy my chat with Sara….
