After a dental appointment prompts 73-year-old Klein to take a hard look at his friends who continue to hold fast to their dwindling youth, he decides to take a month-long retreat to Hydra, Greece, to contemplate philosophies of growing old--from the writings of Epicurus to the songs of Frank Sinatra. Narrator James Jenner takes a conversational approach to this reflection on the art of aging gracefully. Although his performance is occasionally punctuated with oddly placed pauses, Jenner's easygoing style and comfort with Greek and other languages add to the charm of Klein's entertaining musings on the transformations that come with maturity, including how they affect friendships, marriage, and play. Listeners will quickly connect with this refreshing perspective of embracing the privileges of growing older. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2013]
