Wayne Booth has selected, and has been inspired by, the works by some of our greatest writers on the art of growing older. In this widely praisedanthology he shows that the very making of art is in itself a victory over time.
Culled chiefly from great literary works, this unusual compendium of prose and poetry . . . highlights the physical and emotional aspects of aging. . . . The thoughtful commentary with which Booth connects the selections reminds readers that physical decay and fear of death are conditions common to us all. . . . Provocative. Publishers Weekly
His blending of literature, humor, and crotchetiness will capture the interest of readers of all ages. Booklist

Funny . . . profound. . . . It is hard to resist the closing chapters, which celebrate the freedom from constraint and ambition, the permission to be crotchety, the joy of memory and perspective that come with age. William March, Tampa Tribune
Booth puts a new spin on the worries many of us have about what's catching up with us. . . . Booth's book . . . [is] for both the younger readers and those of us who are nervously counting birthdays. Sacramento Bee
