It is never too late to change your life.

Autumn, 2018 

Jenny Boylan is the author of 15 books, a Trustee of PEN America, and the Anna Quindlen Writer in Residence at Barnard College of Columbia University.

My column “Men and Women” appears on the opinion page of the New York Times every other Wednesday.

I’ve taken my leave of New York City until winter 2019, when I return to Barnard College and Columbia University for the semester.  Until then I’ll (mostly) be back in Maine working on a book, hanging with my family, and playing with our dogs.
