“Older than My Boss: A Collection of Short Stories about Old People on the Verge of Making a Change” by Carolyn Gaye shares the uplifting accounts of people 55 and over who are puzzling out their future.
The flow of life carries us along until its subtle current threatens to strand us on the shore unless we adjust and change course. The book narrates the tales of a wide variety of people and circumstances who are at a crossroads in life in their retirement years and must find a way to move forward. These men and women need to make decisions, but they have entered a new territory in life where the terrain is unfamiliar, and it seems the guideposts have been moved. Which way should they turn- in the direction of freedom or responsibility, acceptance or resistance, involvement or independence? The answers aren’t always clear.
“This book assumes that we become wiser as we get older and we make good decisions as we approach certain crossroads in life familiar to people in their mature years that usually involve a loss of control over our relationships, finances, minds, bodies, occupations and our day to day routines,” Gaye says.
Readers at the precipice of a new stage of life will find the short stories in “Older than My Boss” entertaining as well as insightful.
