When is someone old? Is 50 the magic number? Is 70 the new 60? Are we old when we retire? When we qualify for a senior’s card? At the point when we are defined as ‘old’ we are assigned to a category. We are often patronised, ignored, shouted at, called love, dear and darling - not our name - and expected to dwell on the margins of society.
Patricia Edgar’s In Praise of Ageing tells the stories of eight people who have lived into their nineties and beyond. These people will inspire you, entertain you and motivate you to be connected, interested, risk-taking and inventive.
