Adult Fiction IRONSID
Summary: A delightful novel about letting go of youth and embracing the sassy curmudgeon withinDonÂt harass her about parasailing or taking Italian language courses. Forget about suggesting she join a gym. Marie Sharp may be a little creaky in the bones as she heads toward the big 6-0, but sheÂs fine with it. She would rather do without all the moving-to-Florida-bicycling-across- Mongolia-for-the-hell-of-it hoopla that her friends insist upon. SheÂs already led an exciting life: She came of age in the 1960s, after all. Now, with both a new grandchild and a new man on the horizon, all she wants to do is make the most of what she considers the most interesting stage of her life. In this wonderfully astute novel based on the authorÂs own experiences, No! I DonÂt Want to Join a Book Clubis the funnyÂand often poignantÂfictionalized diary of an older woman . . . a decade or two past her prime and content to leave it all behind her. So donÂt tell her to take a gourmet cooking class, and whatever you do, donÂt you dare tell her to join a book club. Fresh and truly unique, moving gracefully on in years has never been more hilarious than in this forthright grandmaÂs take on the Âthird phaseÂ of life.
