Date:9/22/2008

'Knowing Pains: Women on Love, Sex and Work in Our 40s' donates all

proceeds to Breast Cancer Action Editor: Molly Rosen, MBA

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- From tattoos to affairs, from motherhood to mayhem, from battling alcoholism and eating disorders to everything in between, real women in their 40s aren't afraid to tell it like it is. "Knowing Pains: Women on Love, Sex and Work in Our 40s" is a new book that brings together a collection of 32 essays from women from 11 states.

Available in October, "Knowing Pains" was conceived by Molly Rosen, who sought such an anthology when she turned 40. When none existed, Rosen took a hiatus from a successful corporate career to assemble the women who not only survived their 40s, but also thrive with dignity, courage and laughter. This includes:

-- Single mom Ona tries to balance an affair with two men

-- Lori learns about being a 'geriatric mama' at 40

-- Susan comes to terms with her eating disorder

-- Lauren copes with being a mother to three - and widow - at 40

-- Erin saves her mother from the bottle

-- Diane leaves her friends, career and family behind to live her 40s in

Paris

-- Thea shares her struggles with infertility and politics

Starting in October, in honor of those affected by breast cancer, 100% of all book net proceeds will be donated to Breast Cancer Action (http://www.bcaction.org) to support breast cancer education and advocacy. Among the essayists featured in the book:

-- 89% have been personally impacted by the breast cancer epidemic.

-- 37% have had breast cancer, or a breast cancer scare.

-- 56% have had a family member with the disease.

-- More than 70% have had a friend or colleague afflicted with breast

cancer.
