Summary
When she started working with the aged more than 40 years ago, Ann Burack-Weiss began packing away the knowledge and skills she thought would help when she became older herself. It was not until she hit her mid-seventies that she realized she had packed sneakers to climb Mount Everest, not anticipating the crevices and chasms that constitute the rocky terrain of old age. The professional literature offered little help, so she turned to the late-life writing of beloved women authors who had bravely climbed the mountain and sent back news from the summit. Maya Angelou, Colette, Simone de Beauvoir, Joan Didion, Marguerite Duras, and Doris Lessing were among the many guides she turned to for inspiration. In 'The Lioness in Winter', Burack-Weiss blends an analysis of key writings from these and other famed women authors with her own wisdom to create a companion for older women and those who care for them
