Synopsis:
New/Red dot copy. A warm and funny collection of essays by the author of the Life and Letters of Tofu Roshi, on the sometimes confusing, sometimes poignant, sometimes hilarious condition of being a woman over sixty. It includes a letter of gratitude to her bones for serving her as well as they do; observations on the paradox of finding herself both an orphan and a matriarch following the death of her mother; musings on her tendency to regret missed opportunities; confessions of her fear of going blind; celebratory advice on regarding "senior moments" as opportunities to be in the here and now; thoughts on how not to be afraid of loneliness and how to honour the inner tomboy; and inspiration for considering everyone as one's grandchildren.

"Aging is the biggest issue facing me and everyone I know. This book is poignant, funny, and spot-on, and I am tremendously grateful to Susan Moon for writing it. I love this book!" Sylvia Boorstein.

"A sweet, mellow, funny, wise, sad, and deeply affecting book. Susan Moon's essays are so disarmingly honest, so personal and plain, that they will make you forget what an astonishingly rare and profound achievement this is." Norman Fischer.

"Susan Moon's stories are wonderful companions and guides as I go about my ordinary life." Maxine Hong Kingston.
