Inhaltsangabe: What is it like to be old? Diana Athill, born in 1917, made her reputation as a writer with the candour of her memoirs.

This is a lively narrative of events, lovers and friendships: the people and experiences that have taight her to regret very little, to resist despondency and to question the beliefs and customs of her own generation.
