Summary
Before his passing in 2018, nearing ninety, Hall delivered this new collection of self-knowing, fierce, and funny essays on aging, the pleasures of solitude, and the sometimes astonishing freedoms arising from both. He intersperses memories of exuberant days<U+2014>as in Paris, 1951, with a French girl memorably inclined to say, “I couldn<U+2019>t care less”<U+2014>with writing, visceral and hilarious, on what he has called the “unknown, unanticipated galaxy” of extreme old age
