About this title


Seventy-six-year-old Simon Shea, a retired professor of English literature, moves from his cottage into the Norman Home where, in the course of two weeks, he reconsiders the events of his life

From the Inside Flap:

el. Out of Old Age, which our peculiar times have determined to view as a sort of generational sin, Jon Hassler has drawn forth a poignant, funny, wise novel about Eternal Youth."
Simon Shea, a retired professor of English at a small Minnesota college, has begun to forget things and is making dangerous errors in living. Thinking he needs to be cared for more closely, he commits himself to a private rest home, and opens a world of the strange, delightful, frightening, and comic, as he attempts to recover from his mistake.
