I returned to the same respiratory therapist for my annual checkup. I told her that her words to me, 'You look good for your age, ' had inspired a book. 'Wow ' she said. 'You wrote a whole book about that?' 'Twenty-nine kick-ass writers wrote it, ' I said. She gave me a thumbs up. From the Preface

This is a book about women and ageism. There are twenty-nine contributing writers, ranging in age from their forties to their nineties. Through essays, short stories, and poetry, they share their distinct opinions, impressions, and speculations on aging and ageism and their own growth as people. In these thoughtful, fierce, and funny works, the writers show their belief in women and the aging process.
