Abstract:

"Attempting to make sense of her life, and change her sad demure to a happy one, the author of In the Backyard: Relearning the Art of Aging, Dying and Making Love seeks out the help of her in-house therapist, Dr. George Nemeth. The accredited psychologist's answers to the big questions provide a compassionate and humorous backdrop on to how to seize the day and not give up hope when faced with the nasty realities of poor health and unrealized aspirations. Plenty of sage advice is given. Anyone who has grieved the loss of a loved one, battled existential blues or on the other side of the spectrum, celebrated the pleasures of everyday living--cooking, gardening and sex--will take delight in this author's quirky quest to stay sane."--
