It's a choice: mourn the years gone by, or celebrate your new era with humor and grace. Author Judith Viorst chooses the latter, celebrating life with observations that are funny, moving, inspirational, and true. Viorst's wise and witty verse examines the prospects of sagging kneecaps, awkward college reunions, and fantasies of love in the afternoon; cholesterol counts, adult-education courses and other atrocities of midlife-which somehow aren't as painful when you can laugh at them. A perfect gift for a landmark birthday. Hardcover, 64 pages.
