Biographies and Memoirs - Large Print Standing Order Plan

A Mix of bestselling and well-reviewed biographies and memoirs — including: historical biographies, celebrity biographies and memoirs, and inspiring narrative memoirs relating fascinating and compelling experiences of intriguing people.



On Susan Gubar’s seventieth birthday, she receives a beautiful ring from her husband. Contemplating their sustaining relationship, she considers how older lovers differ from their youthful counterparts ― and from ageist stereotypes. As her husband confronts age-related disabilities that effectively ground them, Susan dawdles over the logistics of moving to a more manageable place and starts seeking out literature on the changing seasons of desire. On the page and in life, she realizes that age cannot wither love. A memoir proving that the heart’s passions have no expiration date, Late-Life Love rejoices in second chances.
