9781634133920: How Old Am I in Dog Years?: And Other Thoughts About Life from the Far Side of the Hill

How Old Am I In Dog Years? is a joyous, snark-filled, and completely relatable collection of essays that skewer the foibles of ordinary events.

''The life examined is worth living especially if it's this deep and funny.'' -- Willie Nelson, singer, songwriter, actor and author

''Funny and Fabulous...'' -- Jan Tuckwood, presentation editor, The Palm Beach Post Casts the Golden Years as antic realism... -- Julie Gilbert, novelist, biographer, playwright, and teacher

With topics ranging from marital ''bliss'' to wearing stiletto heels at an age when one should know better, Susan blends just the right amount of the absurd into her daily life to keep her readers laughing -- and thinking. After all, where else can you find reality TV with a senior slant, or organic food shopping with a side of wry?

This sparkling collection will appeal to mothers and daughters alike, as well as the fathers and sons trying to figure out what the other side really thinks.

From the Inside Flap:

"The life examined is worth living – especially if it's this deep and funny."-- Willie Nelson, singer, songwriter, author "If you want to stay funny and fabulous during the third act of life, take Susan Goldfein along. She's the hilarious BFF who's thinking what you're thinking--about everything from gray hair to granny names--and she's not afraid to write it."-- Jan Tuckwood, presentation editor, The Palm Beach Post "Just when we think no one 'gets it' anymore, there comes along a new voice that excavates and skewers. Afresh sensibility illuminating a well-beaten path. Susan Goldfein's voice, welcoming yet tart, casts the Golden Years as 'antic realism,' as well as being a manual for everyone on their way to seniority. This book will cause a reader to say, 'I'll have what she's writing'."-- Julie Gilbert, novelist, biographer, playwright, and teacher "Susan observes 'life from the other side of the hill' with wit, style, insight, and great good humor. You'll be smiling, laughing, and nodding in recognition."-- William Hayes, producing artistic director, Palm Beach Drama works
