Overview

Counting up year by year, from 1 to 104, this fascinating collection of human feats and follies is for all who suspect that their lives have yet to start or have passed them by. Feel too young to be the older woman? Chill. Anne Bancroft was a wee 37 when she played the most experienced of seductresses, Mrs. Robinson, in The Graduate. Amazed that even after decades as an adult, you still don't know yourself? Relax:Freud was 41 before he put himself on the couch.

Illustrated with droll, original drawings, What's in an Age will awe, encourage, calm, and prove that people do amazing and unexpected things at every age. From the invigorating (at 78, Grandma Moses takes up painting) to the just plain baffling (97-year-old Simon Stern, of Wisconsin, divorces his 91-year-old bride, Ida), What's in an Age is a handbook for overcoming any age complex.
