Am I Old Yet? is an inspiring and funny memoir of a baby boomer's journey into the belly of a beast where she most feared go-old age and ultimately, a nursing home. To overcome her mid-life crisis, Komaiko adopts a 94-year-old woman. What for Leah begins as a reluctant agreement to spend one hour a week with Adele, at the California Chateau, evolves into hundreds of hours. Through their visits and conversations (about aging, death, miracles and even sex) Adele, who is completely blind, surprisingly is the one who helps Leah see the truth about growing old-no matter how old people are, if they have love in their lives there is only one age. Alive.
