More About Sixty by Ian Brown
 
 
 
Overview
"This is the thing, you see: I am on my way to being an old man. But at sixty, I am still the youngest of old men."

As acclaimed journalist and author Ian Brown's sixtieth birthday loomed, every moment seemed to present a choice: Confront, or deny, the biological fact that the end was now closer than the beginning. Brown chose instead to notice every moment--to try to capture precisely what he was experiencing, without panicking. Sixty is the result: an uncensored, seriocomic report, a slalom of day-to-day dramas (as husband, father, brother, friend, and neighbor), inquisitive reporting, and acute insights from the line between middle-aged and soon-to-be-elderly.
