GROWING OLD Notes on Aging with Something Like Grace

by | Read by Sara Sheckells

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Thomas, the 89-year-old author of books about the social lives of animals and early humans, offers an intelligent and intimate meditation on what it's like to be old. Narrator Sara Sheckells's mature timbre is a good match for the author's age and perspectives. In total sync with the author's writing, her whimsy and dramatic flair make listening fun. This audiobook is rich with stories from the author's fascinating life and precious insights that are full of wisdom, strength, and infectious joy. Infused with the author's vast knowledge of how animals and people have handled late-life challenges, this satisfying work is an immersion into the flow of the natural world, a flow toward death that people in their later years can savor instead of trying to control or change.
