When I get old, I hope to have friends as awesome as these. This is an absolutely feel good novel. Naturally, our intrepid characters, wattles and all, undergo all sorts of trials, but it's the compassion and generosity they exhibit that endears the reader. There's also the sense of humor one acquires when nearing the edge of death, only it's not macabre but an open acceptance of an essential, inevitable part of the human experience.
A dose of extra lovely is the friendship of their little critters who like to gossip about their owners every time they gather, like old biddies... --Sam Sanders, NetGallery
If you’re alive, you’re aging . . . but You Can’t Iron a Wrinkled Birthday Suit smashes senior living stereotypes! Zany families, eccentric friends, and ne’er-do-well neighbors inhabit the labyrinthine lives of three women friends as they live through one puzzling “Golden Year.” A surprise visit from local law enforcement, a younger friend’s romantic disasters, and the death of a parent all combine with daily life—laundry, scones, senior sex—to create one walloping, raucous read. Loquacious pets—critics and alter egos—offer a rich counterpoint to the human dramas affecting their lives. Unfiltered and compelling, this entertaining saga provides readers of all ages with a new and positive view of growing older.
