"Breezy and confident." –The Washington Post

“’Postmenopausal zest’ is fueling a new revolution in the generation that redefined womanhood. Blending insight, observation, and inspiring accounts of women – she calls us each other’s Horizontal Role Models -  Levine crafts a compelling look at how we’re reinventing relationships, sex, and intimacy in Second Adulthood. Love on the far side of fifty will never be the same!” -Mary Eileen Williams, founder

“How We Love Now is an immense aha! of understanding: Because we’ve been punishing love and sex that aren’t linked to having children, we’ve also downplayed the pleasures of love and sex after childbearing years are over. Suzanne Braun Levine breaks this barrier and reveals new and improved possibilities for freedom, intimacy, and pleasure throughout the rest of our lives.” -Gloria Steinem

"Whether you’re single or married, widowed or divorced, this book will remind you of how many opportunities for getting–as well as giving–love already exist in your life, and of the many mroe that await you in Second Adulthood." -Jane Addams, author of Boundary Issues

‘It’s still rare to read anything this thoughtful about our age group. especiialy about caregiving at our age, And caregetting. None of us is too good at that yet. How great to have Suzanne Braun Levine there guiding us as we go along." -Ellen Goodman, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist

"The metaphor I prefer is Levine’s ‘fertile void, a space of unremitting unknowingness. ‘Fertile’ is good because it emphasizes the potential for growth, and ‘void’ feels emptier and more neutral than ‘zone or vacuum.’ It is in the fertile void that tendrils of something new can begin to sprout–if you surrender to it and don’t numb yourself with busyness." -Jane Fonda
