No! I Don't Need Reading Glasses by Virginia Ironside
  

Lovereading view...

Probably one for the reader who does need reading glasses, this a fun and frivolous look at growing old-er fairly disgracefully. Though light and easy to read it offers a very interesting view of what life is like for 60+ exploring the new middle age.

Synopsis

No! I Don't Need Reading Glasses by Virginia Ironside

Marie may be 'getting on a bit' but it's certainly not getting her down. Her family around her and a man who loves her means that life is good - but nothing stays the same for long. Marie's golden years are filled with as much drama - love, laughter and tears - as ever. Which just goes to show that getting on a bit does not mean giving up - or even growing up.

Reviews

'Funny, often agonisingly sad - and familiar'
The Lady

'Witty and affectionate, wise but never pious, this is a delightfully irreverent look at growing older' - The Spectator

'Ironside continues to mine her seam of silver-haired humour ... This latest rage against the dying of the light will win new fans and delight the old' - Daily Mail
