This unique anthology of fiction, memoir, and poetry edited by Sondra Zeidenstein presents seven women writers past the age of sixty, of various cultural backgrounds and histories. Barbara Moore Balzer, Pearl Garrett Crayton, Carol Lee Sanchez, Joan Swift, Eileen Tobin, Florence Weinberger, and Nellie Wong all contribute their individual, authentic life experiences in their writing. Each authors work is followed by an Afterword in which she talks about what is currently on her mind as an artist. Here is living proof of a revolutionary and reassuring fact: maturity is not a detriment but an asset. These stories, poems, and essays move freely in time, rendering life in all its shifting multiplicity through the capricious lens of age. The Afterwords by the writers, each of whom has achieved her own obdurate, hard-won identity, are gloriously articulate. This ground-breaking book has fed me as a woman and writer as only a handful of books has. -- Enid Shomer
