That's how Sadie Delany described the outpouring of affection and admiration that followed the success of Having Our Say, the best-selling memoir she and her sister published in 1993. Now they offer their fans a treasury of grandmotherly good sense: memorable aphorisms, engaging anecdotes, rules for managing money, practical advice on staying active in old age, and some favorite recipes, too. It's a book filled with the secrets of living well, from two women who did it for more than a century.
