The Joy of Growing Older
I hate to start on a shallow note, but Oliver Sacks is adorable:
And while I didn't like his newest book as much as some of the old favorites (like The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat), it is illuminating and beautifully written.
He created a sensation over the 4th of July weekend with his New York Times op-ed piece, "The Joy of Old Age (No Kidding)." Here's a link to the article. Enjoy!
PS. Samuel Beckett was also adorable, and liked to wear his glasses on his forehead, but considerably less joyful about aging.
