Now over 80 years of age, Pauline O'Regan has tackled the subject of old age as she herself is experiencing it. This is a delightfully authentic piece of writing that affirms old age while not denying the reality of the experience.
This delightful book does not set out to minimise the inconvenience of being old, but to show that growing old brings its own pleasures, particularly the confidence of wisdom and the satisfaction of living and enjoying the moment. It is warm, funny and life-affirming.
Much respected and liked for her work in the community, Pauline also reveals that she is a beautiful writer, with the rare skill of being able to describe and convey some of life's more delightful subtleties.
