"I breathed in the dampness and listened to the birds gossiping"
The wisdom that comes with advanced age is rarely accessible to the younger generation.
At the age of 92, art dealer Jeanne Frank has crafted a collection of sixteen creative essays, ruminations on love, life and loss. From the insightful "I Want More" to the poignant "Louies Rose, the poetic lyracism of "Field of Dreams", the wistful "Traveling at Eighty" and "Throttling Back", the zen pleasure of "Peeling Potatoes" and the provocative "The Sweet Sleep", the author's words are lushly concise and highly entertaining.
Told in an unpretentious conversational tone, this colelction will charm older readers with its wit and inspire younger ones with its wisdom.
