With time running short, the lively and intrepid residents of the Sunset Village retirement community in Florida continue to thirst for life. But the true beating heart in these acclaimed short stories is the love of family and friends and the finding of joy in the very act of being alive.
In America, where "old" is a dirty word and people over sixty-five are often treated as if they had a contagious disease, these humorous, jewel-like stories prove our older folks still have a taste for sex, romance, excitement and living. Join the thousands of readers who have let the Sunset Gang into their hearts. They will teach you a lot about the aging process and about life itself - a subject on which they, after all, are the experts.
This collection of short stories was made into an acclaimed three-hour trilogy on PBS's American Playhouse, starring Uta Hagen, Harold Gould, Doris Roberts, Anne Meara, and Jerry Stiller.
