For years the baby boomers have ruled the world. But now, much to their bewilderment, they find they are past their sell-by dates and being shunted aside by the next generation. And their 20-something children won't leave home. And their ancient parents won't shuffle off the stage. They're stuck in the middle, the sandwich generation. They had it all and they spent it all and now they're screaming as they become the new poor, with the added joys of bad backs, hormone imbalances and fading libidos.

Still very much in love, Martin Chadwick and his wife Julie are panicking as the wheels come off their lives. They try drugs, therapy and new jobs, but Martin's unerring ability to screw up absolutely everything, combined with Julie's rampant neuroses just add to the fear, the stress and the anger.
