Scott Fitzgerald whose novel, The Great Gatsby was one of the defining publishing events of the decade, labeled the Jazz Age so because jazz as a music form became increasingly popular during this time especially in big cities like New York and Chicago. The African Americans who were at the forefront of this new. Interviews with midlife women seem to have left sociologist Lillian Rubin, who herself began college at age 39, with remarkably one-dimensional conclusions. Thus, virtually all her subjects denied the presence of the ""empty nest syndrome,"" focusing instead on their ""relief"" that the children were gone (expressed hesitantly, whisperingly).

    "A woman of a certain age" is a common saying. It means more than "a woman of a given age", "a woman who could be any age" or "female, without respect to age". It's usage instead seems to suggest a much more specific period of life. Around what age is a woman "of a certain age"? Women of a certain age takes place in the course of a single night, eight months after we first meet the Gabriels. Patricia, the family matriarch, joins her children and daughters-in-law as they prepare a meal from the past and consider the future of their country, town and home.
