Out of Time: The Pleasures and the Perils of Ageing

Notes

In the footsteps of Simone de Beauvoir, Looks at many of the issues facing the aged – the war of the generations and baby-boomer bashing, the politics of desire, the diminished situation of the older woman, the space on the left for the presence and resistance of the old, the problems of dealing with loss and mortality, and how to find victory in survival.
