Judith Viorst is an American poet, novelist and psychoanalyst. As well as It's Hard to Be Hip Over Thirty and Other Tragedies of Married Life (1968), and its companion in our volume, People & Other Aggravations (1971), she has written other poetry collections, including Suddenly Sixty and Other Shocks of Later Life.

The Hard to be Hip book was a surprise. I am younger than Viorst bya generation but her voice resonates with me through out the HIP book

The Hard to be Hip book was a surprise. I wondered what my daughter had in mind when she chose this book for me, a choice made I imagine at the library's old book give away. I still don't know what she was thinking, maybe of people in general or maybe the content of the book spoke to her about me. Viorst describes in a series of poems the progression of unHipness after marriage in the 60's. I understand these poems in ways I wish I did not understand. I am younger than Viorst bya generation but her voice resonates with me through out the HIP book.

In honor of my 31st birthday on Sunday, I thought I’d find a Persephone book with a title that made me laugh: It’s Hard to be Hip Over Thirty and . At any rate, I was not blown away by Viorst’s poetry; they left me feeling rather meh.

Every step of the way, It’s Hard to be Hip Over Thirty and Other Tragedies of Married Life demonstrates once and for all that no one understands American women coming of age like Judith Viorst.

It's STILL hard to be hip over thirty. com User, September 14, 2001. This book of poetry/short stories made me laugh. Hearing about other people's married life, in laws, etc. is just as funny as telling about my own. I was sad to realize that women have the same problems now as they did in 1970.

I have most all of Judith Viorst's books of poetry/essays/humor. Each decade I've looked forward to her next! They make great gifts as we age for friends my age and my nieces starting to age through the 20s and up! You don't have to be married to enjoy them.

An oldie but a goodie. Just fun and funny and bittersweet reflections on life, growing older, being married, and living.

Person who received this book as a gift enjoyed it very much

I loaned my original copy (first edition) of this to a friend years ago. She never returned it, and I'm thrilled to have it again.

Classic read. Expectations at 30 today have shifted dramatically as compared to the 70s. The cultural norms of the past, when presented through a traditional women's perspective, are hard to digest at times. Women married with 2.5 kids, staying at home to care for the dog and family will connect well with the text. If that's not your case, as it is not for me, you'll enjoy a few laughs while reading.

I was disappointed because I bought it for my eldest granddaughter turning 30--but it's all about a young married woman--with small children! My two eldest granddaughters commented that that's behind the times--at least for them--not married yet--and for sure no children.

Instead I used the When Did I Stop Being Twenty for both, fortunately had ordered two copies thinking I was planning ahead--

My daughter recently gave me a graying original copy of "It's Hard to Be Hip Over Thirty and other tragedies of married life" by Judith Viorst, published first in 1968. Viorst is better known as the author of Alexander and Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

The Hard to be Hip book was a surprise. I wondered what my daughter had in mind when she chose this book for me, a choice made I imagine at the library's old book give away. I still don't know what she was thinking, maybe of people in general or maybe the content of the book spoke to her about me. Viorst describes in a series of poems the progression of unHipness after marriage in the 60's. I understand these poems in ways I wish I did not understand.

The youthful idealism not only present in the 60's generation is an idealism shared by Henry David Thoreau groupies, modern art lovers, and minimalists past and present. If you majored in business, hard science, ENGINEERING, or anything really "useful" in life, and hated your English, philosophy, and music/art appreciation courses --if you took any at all, Viorst may sound to you like some pot smoking, bleeding heart liberal, socialist from the 60's who recovered just in time to join the suburban crush of SUV driver's who live in your neighborhood. And mine.

One of my favorites begins:

Once I aspired to
Humble black turtleneck sweaters
And spare unheated rooms
With the Kama Sutra, a few madrigals, and
Great literature and philosophy.

Viorst is known best for the "horrible ... day" book for children, and I think the popularity of the Alexander story is due to Viorst's ability to connect to humanity through literature and philosophy. There should be a Tao of Alexander!

I am younger than Viorst bya generation but her voice resonates with me through out the HIP book. I will buy new copies of this book for friends, but only for the really HIP ones!

And yes, I majored in English.
This book of poetry/short stories made me laugh. Hearing about other people's married life, in laws, etc. is just as funny as telling about my own. I was sad to realize that women have the same problems now as they did in 1970. Not knowing what this book was about when I bought it I was hoping for answers, but fortunately I got a laugh at least. Quite amusing for people interested in women's studies as well.
