Singing in Tune with Time
Stories and Poems about Ageing

By Elizabeth Cairns (Editor)

about the book
Well known and new writers explore the myriad experiences of ageing in this compelling anthology. Stories, extracts from novels and autobiography mingle here to reveal how women and men face - and challenge - the passing of the years. Some anticipate new opportunities and the freedom to simply be themselves, others accept the restrictions of ageing and are not diminished by them, while one bitterly rages against infirmity. Moments of transition, change and discovery are gathered here in a collection that is both light and dark - and which is laced with a wit sharpened by years of practice.

Price: £6.99
