THE ERASER: EXISTENTIAL MUSINGS IN SENIOR AMERICA
Jon Wiles, author
IN A DECADE 60 MILLION AMERICANS WILL BE 65+. In general, older people lose the work identities, spouses, possessions, and hope as they age. Little by little they are erased. Surprisingly, little is known about this major population wave. For example, most are quite poor, many lack traditional religious conviction, a majority are consumed by social issues, and the age group is now the most divorce-prone group in America. See what I mean? THE ERASER introduces you to the lives of some persons experiencing this last stage of life. If you are feeling old, or caring for an elder, or have a kid that just doesn't get it, THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU.
