Alexandra Robbins, Amy Wilner “Quarterlife Crisis: The Unique Challenges of Life in Your Twenties”


  • When we told 90-year-old Irving that we were writing this book about the quarterlife crisis, he agreed that the idea of a twentysomething counterpart to the midlife crisis seesm accurate. Buth then he added he believes people experience some sort of crisis in every decade. So we asked him, partly in pest, what the ninetysomething crisis involves. He paused for only a few seconds before he responded: “Finding interesting activities to do and learning to deal with the fact that many of your friends are gone.”
  • How the hell can a person go to work in the morning, come home in the evening, and have nothing to say?
  • “I’ve had feelings of hopelessness, loneliness and isolation throughout my twenties, on and off. /…/ Sometimes a job will temporarily relieve that, but not really.”
  • Twentysomethings told us that their success pretty much depended on one of two things: what kind of luck they had in the various areas of their lives; or how well they could hold themselves together to keep up the right kind of attitude.
  • “I worry sometimes that I’ll never feel like I’ve arrived, that I’ll always have inner turmoil.”
