You're Old, I'm Old . . . Get Used to It!: Twenty Reasons Why Growing Old Is Great


You're Old, I'm Old . . . Get Used to It!: Twenty Reasons Why Growing Old Is Great Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's time to stop hiding that birth certificate!

Virginia Ironside wants you to know that getting old is a good thing-and not in that dreadful "sixty is the new forty" way. At sixty- five, she has no interest in pretending to be young and neither should you. Virginia celebrates all the "issues" that she and her fellow oldies embrace, including:

  • Talking about ailments (and the fabulous meds that come with them)
  • Grandchildren (the reward you get for not killing your children)
  • Wisdom (random disorganized knowledge you get to put a fancy label on because you're old)

    No-nonsense, wryly self-deprecating, and totally persuasive, You're Old, I'm Old . . . Get Used to It! unabashedly exalts the virtues of aging.

About the Author

Virginia Ironside is the author of the novel No! I Don't Want to Join a Book Club. A writer and journalist since 1964, she currently writes the "Dilemmas" weekly advice column for The Independent in London, where she also lives.
