    Om Out of Time

    A profound and sympathetic investigation of ageing, in life and literature. In Out of Time, leading thinker Lynne Segal examines her life and surveys the work and lives of other writers and artists to explore the pleasures and perils of growing old. Following in the footsteps of Simone de Beauvoir-who in her mid-fifties mourned 'never again!' and yet was energetically writing in her sixties and seventies-Segal mixes memoir, literature and polemic to examine the inevitable consequences of staying alive.Who is that stranger who stares back from the mirror? What happens to ambition and sexuality? As millions of baby boomers approach their sixth or seventh decade, these questions are becoming increasingly urgent. Must the old always be in conflict with the young? How can we deal with the inevitability of loss and find victory in survival?Brilliant, moving and challenging, Out of Time is an urgent and necessary corrective to the assumptions and taboos that constrain the lives of the aged.
