Old Age: A Beginner's Guide - Michael Kinsley

Staff Pick

Michael Kinsley, who turned sixty-five this year, is arguably too young to have written a book he’s calling a primer to growing old. But as he acknowledges in Old Age: A Beginner’s Guide (Tim Duggan, $18), Kinsley has been nothing if not precocious for a good part of his career. Besides, he got a head start on experiencing and thinking about ageing when, at forty-three, he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. This is a thin, small book, but it’s filled with insight, wit, and Kinsley’s characteristic well-pitched prose.
