SIMON & SCHUSTER released the new exciting version of  ​
THE VIAGRA DIARIES, May, 2013.  Optioned for a TV series!
AUDIO GO PUBLISHERS has released the audio version of the novel. 
Published in 13 FOREIGN COUNTRIES!  

KIRKUS REVIEW says THE VIAGRA DIARIES  is, “a smart, witty, sometimes hilarious coming -of-age novel for and about the boomer generation. This realistic and funny novel will appeal to women of all ages, while men should find it attractively controversial.”

“I love this book! Barbara paints a funny as well as poignant picture of dating, romantic love, parenting an adult daughter, and sex after sixty. Barbara tells the truth and this book vibrates with razor sharp wit!”

Through the eyes of the wonderfully witty, wounded and wistfully romantic Anny Applebaum, we discover a world few authors have dared to enter – the dating lives of the over sixty set. What we find there is humor, heartache and hope. Brooker's prose is poetry. She doesn’t write this story, she paints it in the subtlest, refined colors imaginable.”

“This is a most timely read in regard to how fast-track medication, relationships and communication impact not only who we are and how we behave but also how one manages to keep a healthy perspective.”
