Silver medal for the 4th Annual Living Now Book Awards

Now past her eightieth birthday, Naomi Beth Wakan is well-placed to be writing about aging. Qualifying between merely being old and old-old, she considers retirement homes, elder abuse, death and the often thorny question of what to call people once they're past retirement. With humour and honesty she looks at the disconnect between how she sees herself and how the world sees her and concludes it's this inner view that decides nearly everything about aging.
