Old Old Age: A Brief Guide

Author(s): Ian Hansen


This is about the `old old¿, not the physically lively sixty and seventy-year-olds, but octogenarians having a voice. The eighties are when it all begins to crumble.This book gives the young and middle-aged insights into the world of the elderly. It deals with frailty, loss, loneliness, and death, but it¿s not a gloomy book: it uses extracts from novels and poems to help in exploring growing old. It balances lightness and seriousness and will have an acute relevance for its older readers.
