Jo Peck: Suddenly Single at Sixty

Jo-Peck-Suddenly-Single-at-SixtyAn uplifting, witty and hilarious memoir about a devastating breakup and a fabulous new life.

Dumped by her husband of twenty-five years, Jo Peck – smart, successful and sixty – is totally floored. There’s the complete bombshell of the news, the cliché of a younger woman – a much younger woman.

There’s the disappointment of cancelled retirement travel plans, and there’s the foundation-rocking loss of her sense of identity – if she’s no longer Rex’s wife, who the hell is she?

She’s lost and angry and hurt and confused. But not for long! There’s the comfort and support of excellent friends and newly forged connections with extended family; there’s therapy. And there’s internet dating.

This inspiring, witty and at times hilarious memoir tells the story of the road from shock and despair to an unexpected new life, of friendship, romance and racy sex – proof that being suddenly single at sixty is not the end, it’s an opportunity for a fabulous new beginning.

Jo Peck grew up in Healesville, Victoria. She worked in advertising for thirty-five years, co-running her own ad agency, Working Girls Advertising, for twenty of those years. She lives in Melbourne with her new partner.
