NO! I DON'T WANT TO JOIN A BOOK CLUB Diary of a 60th Year

by | Read by Sian Phillips

Fiction • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

If you've ever wondered whether aging has any pluses, this is a must listen. Sian Phillips's throaty British accent portrays Marie Sharp, who is rapidly approaching 60 and is "infatuated with aging." She wants to avoid book clubs, living with the Masai, taking up paragliding, or taking on a young lover. She's delighted by free prescriptions, eye exams, and being a granny to little Gene. Memories of her path to maturity are interspersed with her growing wisdom, such as her developing appreciation for funerals, the celebration of lives lived well. Phillips has a strong, confident tone that captures Ironside's wry wit. Both author and narrator make listeners wonder at the fascinating perspectives herein and laugh aloud at the humor.
