With a unique and hysterical twist, 81-year-old author Dolly Delanty turns the everyday mundane events at her retirement home, and abroad in Australia, into laugh-out-loud satirical and honest vignettes in her new book, “Revelations of an Ugly Old Hag.”

Delanty initially started writing the book to describe how one feels when they go into a retirement home, but it quickly turned into a parody as she immensely enjoyed retelling the events in a satirical manner.

In an excerpt from the book, Delanty describes her observations of the residents at her retirement home after speaking to her doctor:

“My OB-GYN told me that the incidence of STDs is extremely big in retirement and nursing homes…Looking around me, I don’t know how any of the men can do anything vaguely resembling the sex act. Bloody hell! Most of them are in their 80s and 90s. It looks to me that the ladies could be up for it though. Hooray for woman power!”

“The book is outrageous at times and helps readers escape the tension of today’s world for a while,” said Delanty. “I tend to make fun of people and myself. Is it mean spirited? Some may think so. I don’t obviously. Everything is tongue-in-cheek and not to be taken too seriously.”

With its expletive details and witty quips, her book requires readers to have an open mind and a sick sense of humor. To learn more about the author and her book visit, http://www.dollydelanty.com.
