Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Writer Charlotte Painter and artist/photographer Pamela Valois have combined their impressive talents to present these intimate glimpses into the lives of thirty-two remarkable women, each of whom has discovered in maturity the opportunity of exploring new and exciting challenges. These are the Gifts of Age: the time, the freedom, and hopefully the wisdom to develop creative new images of oneself and one's place in the complexities of a long life. All of the women in this book are more than sixty-five years of age, and included are such well-known personalities as Julia Child, M.F.K. Fisher, Joan Baez Senior, and Louise M. Davies. No two have followed the same path, but each has been successful in achieving some new, frequently unanticipated distinction in her latter years. Gifts of Age is a fascinating insight into just how productive one's extended life can be, and inspiration for anyone who believes that the creative talent for living need not diminish with the passage of years.

About the Author

Pamela Valois lives in Berkeley, California with her husband and two sons. Her photographs have been shown in West Coast galleries and have appeared nationally in books, magazines, and calendars.

Charlotte Painter has treated all aspects of women's lives, in both her fiction and personal narratives. Her most recent novel is Seeing things, and she was coeditor of Revelations: diaries of women.
