The challenges that come with middle age are something we all experience, but many of us find it hard to relate those challenges to others. 'Sampson and Delilah' recognizes that these problems are out there and can be overcome.

America is getting older. With the last of the baby boomers turning 48 this year, an entire generation of Americans is facing the unique challenges of middle age. These challenges, and the changes that come with them, are explored in the new book by Arthur P. Day, “Sampson and Delilah”.

“Sampson and Delilah” is the story of the complicated relationships and difficult life decisions faced by Johnny “Agile” Walker and Zinny Jones as they find themselves advancing into middle age. A sexual and emotional journey, Jonny and Zinny learn to face their challenges head-on as they attempt to gain some satisfaction and joy out of lives that haven’t quite met their expectations.

A writer for – and a voice of – his generation, Day’s complex characters are as relatable as they are captivating.

“My hope is that readers can gain new perspectives on growing older as they read this book,” says Day. “The challenges that come with middle age are something we all experience, but many of us find it hard to relate those challenges to others. 'Sampson and Delilah' recognizes that these problems are out there and can be overcome.”

“Sampson and Delilah” is a compelling exploration of the problems of middle age: the challenges of overweight people and their treatment in society; the difficulties of caring for loved ones and navigating the healthcare system; the stresses of working a thankless job; and the question of how much of our own lives we control and how much seems to be a matter of fate.

As much an entertaining work of fiction as it is a resource for growing older, “Sampson and Delilah” offers a unique look into the lives and loves of the baby boomer generation.
