Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This enchanting collection of writings and photographs evokes the beauty, humor and courage of women living in their later years and tells of the endearing moments of joy-and passion-to be found in the rich and varied world of midlife and beyond. An award-winning anthology that takes a refreshing look at issues of aging in a society that glorifies youth. Over 1.6 million copies of the anthology have been sold across the United States. This groundbreaking collection was one of the first non-clinical and positive books on women and aging, and was written by older women themselves. It challenged stereotypes and confronted the invisibility of older women in America.

Synopsis:

This remarkable collection of fiction, photographs and poetry evokes the beauty, humor and courage of mid-life and older women. Sharing the universal message of aging as a natural gift of life, When I am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple is the winner of the Abby Honors Award (1991) and two Benjamin Franklin Awards: for design, content and literature (1988), and for excellence and innovation in marketing and in literature (1992).

Synopsis:

This title is the No. 1 selling book in this category to older readers. The large type edition is particularly welcome to many of these readers.
