This touching diary reveals a year in the life of the author James Roose-Evans. Older is a vivid and illuminating portrait of growing old. This 'thought diary' was written through James Roose-Evans's ninety-first year. The result is a cornucopia of delights that touches on everything from the profound to the minutiae of daily life. Throughout Roose-Evans writes with wit, sensitivity and an eye for detail - and his reflections will teach us much about how we should approach the process of ageing.

Arvustused

As James Roose-Evans moves into his tenth decade he brings us a diary as a gift. Drawing on his experiences as a man of the theatre, a lover of poetry and someone who has held on to his Christian faith, as well as spending years in Jungian analysis, the book has a most attractive meditative flavour. But he also spares us nothing of the daily trials - painful visits to the Royal Free Hospital, the diminishing of life's opportunities - as well as the joy of planting bulbs and making chutney. He makes it quite clear in his view that this is not a last farewell but the final pathway to a new beginning' Melvyn Bragg.

JAMES ROOSE-EVANS' list of accomplishments is formidable. Fifty years ago he founded the Hampstead Theatre. He has written seventeen books, including the best-selling Inner Journey: Outer Journey and Experimental Theatre, and has directed countless plays, including his award-winning adaptation of 84 Charing Cross Road. He is a non-stipendiary Anglican priest, founded the Bleddfa Centre for the Creative Spirit (in North Wales) and continues to lead meditation, ritual and theatre masterclasses today. He lives in Hampstead, north London.
