The View from Here by Joan Bakewell
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In this book, Joan Bakewell writes with characteristic honesty and humanity about life in one's seventies. From considering a mini-skirt instead of a mackintosh and learning how to use an Pod, to dreading the obituary pages for fear of finding a friend among them, The View from Here considers with wisdom and warmth the physical, social and psychological consequences of ageing. Joan also returns to issues that have always been close to her, including the nature of faith, what it means to be British and how we engage politically with the world around us. Her book combines personal history with cultural commentary to provide a one of the most disarming and up-to-date accounts yet published of life as an older person.
