This review is from: About Time: Growing Old Disgracefully (Hardcover)
Irma Kurtz writes with wit and intelligence, perception and emotion, summing up so many of the little idiosyncrasies of old age, and revelling in the advantages of not being under 60 any more. Her Jewish background informs and entertains the more generalised whole, and the pace of book never falters. A great read for the over 60s which I can thoroughly recommend for winter evenings, holiday relaxation, easy reading for travelling, in fact any time. You won't be disappointed. Irma Kurtz had a light approach, choosing her words accurately and carefully, which has one nodding in agreement and empathy right the way through.
Younger readers take note that you may not be familiar with all those things that happened when your parents/grandparents were young but this book might be quite educational in the nicest way about some of the lighter aspects of the previous generations.
