For this anthology, we asked geriatricians (specialists in the care of older people) to nominate their favourite pieces of prose or poetry. We are very grateful to our colleagues for their diverse suggestions. The book celebrates the wisdom and resilience of ageing and is a showcase of the very best literature on the subject.
The project is not for profit, and we will donate any proceeds to age-related charities.
Read on for the Preface to the book by the editors, Shane O'Hanlon and Paul Finucane, two geriatricians.
This anthology is intended for use in educational establishments and consists mainly of material in which no copyright subsists
