The View from Here: Life at Seventy

by Joan Bakewell
£8.99   paperback  Atlantic Books (Guardian Books) (2007)

The View from Here: Life at Seventy by Joan Bakewell The View from Here is inspired by Joan Bakewell’s much-loved column, ‘Just 70’.
 
In this book, as in the original articles, she writes with characteristic honesty and humanity about life in one’s seventies. From applying eyeshadow without glasses and learning how to use an iPod, to dreading reading obituary columns for fear of finding a friend among them, this wonderful book combines personal history with cultural commentary to provide one of the most disarming and up-to-date accounts yet published of life as an older person.
