Old Age is a territory that most of us can expect to enter and brave, however tentatively. In this anthology, Wayne Booth has selected, and has been inspired by, the works of some of our greatest writers--Shakespeare, Emily Bronte, Walt Whitman, and many more--on the art of growing older. Profound, witty, shrewd, compassionate, but never sentimental, he deals candidly with losses, fears, and lamentations, but then dwells on not just the consolations but the reasons for celebration.About the Author:
