A Welcome Reissue of Fierce with Reality
Fierce with Reality, a culturally diverse literary collection on aging, has been reissued by the editor, Margaret Cruikshank. The anthology highlights writings by women from late l9th century American literature to the present, and includes an essay by Pat.
Ranging from ancient Chinese poetry to Mary Oliver and Alice Walker, the anthology includes fiction, philosophical essays, personal essays, humor, analyses of ageism, and folktales from Asia and Iraq. Many facets of aging are explored, revealing the challenges and complexities of late-life experiences, and demonstrating that aging is both individual and social/cultural.
Is Margaret Cruickshank still living “fierce with reality” and active in the field of Gerastology? I am just finishing reading her book, Learning to be Old, and wanted to send her a really big Thank You for this,her amazing piece of work!. And am having a difficult time finding much reference to her. However if this reissue is dated just last month, think she is still embodied here somewhere. I will now not give up hope, but keep searching.
thanks for the note on my book Fierce With Reality
glad to have you in it
