Midlife Creativity and Identity: Life into Art

This book explores the artistic routines and inspirations of amateur and professional musicians, fine artists and literary authors experiencing midlife. Based on ethnographic insight, it argues that creativity is driven by the pursuit of a ‘mezzanine’ in-between state where the anarchy of possibility is an antidote to the realities of middle age.
