Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This remarkable collection of writings and photographs evokes the beauty, humor, and courage of women living in their later years and tells of the joyful and poignant moments found in the rich and varied world of midlife and beyond. By younger writers looking forward in time and older writers who have already experienced the rewards and challenges, this award-winning anthology takes a refreshing look at the issues of aging in a society that glorifies youth.

Review:

"The literary quality of these stories and poems is consistently high. Many of the pieces are exciting glimpses into the lives of old women." Women's Review of Books

Review:

"How do you account for an underground best-seller on the subject of aging women? The answer is easy: honesty. This is a small-press runaway success anbout older women as we really know them...The book is finely crafted, unusual in its focus, universal in its ability to sensitize us to the human condition." Georgia Journal
