Thursday, December 29: Author Nuala O'Faolain

Salt Lake City – Nuala O'Faolain knows it makes her seem a megalomaniac, but one memoir just wasn't enough. Her first, "Are You Somebody," an exploration of her life at mid-life, was immensely popular. But she still had something to say about the journey. In "Almost There," she describes middle age as "adolescence come again at the other side of adulthood." O'Faolain joins Doug Fabrizio to talk about middle age, about the elusive sense of real contentment, and about the courage of going for it at the tail-end of life.
