In Praise of Older Women is as singular as a lemon tree or a giraffe or a ripe pear. In a voice free of vanity and subterfuge, the writer tells a story of the worst of times, and the ever-shifting truths about girls and youths, men and women and their sexual connections — and mis-connections — in a way that is always luminous and enlightening.
