Bojan Pavlovic has created a stirring tale of two families and how their lives intersect. Beginning in pre-World War Two Germany, Mid-Life spans seventy-five years and three continents as its characters come to grips with life, love, and survival.

Originally published in the 2009 issues of The First Line as a series of stories entitled, "From Bangalore," Mid-Life is broken into four parts and includes a brand new epilogue. The first lines that inspired Bojan were:

Part 1: Herman Sligo was a bit actor who played Uncle Emil in three episodes of the popular television series The Five Sisters.

Part 2: For two weeks now, I've been trying to figure out if people are laughing with me or at me.

Part 3: "My life is a sham."

Part 4: Waiting for change always seems to take longer than you would expect.
