    About The Book

    « Personally, I’ve got a lot invested in reaching my stunning current age, and I’m damned if I’m going to hang on to that youthful crap. (I liked the idea of being a sixty-year-old so much I started claiming that age before I turned fifty-nine.) Parts of it, I don’t like — the loss of energy that seems its inevitable accompaniment, for example — but when I consider how I used to boil that energy away as a younger man, and the things I boiled it away on, I am happy to accept a shorter tether and a more reflective way of going at things. »

    John Jerome, author of such beloved books as Truck and Stone Work, entered his sixty-fifth year with a number of goals in mind: to battle the debilities of age, to master them through understanding when he could not physically defeat them, and to keep a journal of these efforts. As he puts it, « It was time to start planning an endgame. »

    The result is a warm, compassionate, and honest look at the twelve months that led him to the gateway of old age — a survey of this time of life which ranges from strict physiology to expansive philosophy, from delicate neurosurgery to rough weather on a Canadian canoeing trip, from the despair and isolation of illness to the love and comfort of a sound marriage. The writing, in its clarity, grace, and humor, matches its author’s spirit. « The quality of our lives depends on the quality of our time, » Jerome reminds us. Reading this wise and funny chronicle of one man’s — and everyman’s — journey toward citizenship, senior division, will be time well spent, for young and old alike. It is that rare kind of book which comes to life as a companion, and even a friend.
