Into the Sunset (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:32PM
Description: Wayne Benson doesn't require nursing care. He's not a senior citizen. He isn't even retired. But this healthy 30-year-old bachelor believes the comfortable life of The Sunset, an assisted-living retirement community, would be a soothing alternative to his hectic lifestyle. Everything he desires-gourmet meals, laundry services, camaraderie, tranquility-is available for one all-inclusive monthly fee. The only problem? He isn't the required minimum age of sixty-two. So, he dons theatrical make-up and gray wig to age himself forty years, and is accepted into The Sunset. Will everything go as smoothly as planned? Of course not! His elderly love interest becomes suspicious of his under-cover-of-darkness-only lovemaking, his neighbor wants to go to strip clubs and experiment with Viagra®, the head of security is more interested in extortion than security, and the woman who runs The Sunset may be onto his scheme. Can Wayne survive old age?

This was really lovely. It was perfectly written (seriously, Gabrielle Zevin has mastered using the English language), and heartfelt. It was a little sappy at times, but it felt appropriate. I loved the span of this book - over a decade of..." Read more of this review »

Susan Henderson Don, you have a great bookshelf!


Jeremy Hi Donald!

Here’s wishing you a nifty New Year filled with noiseless noses, neato nicknames, noble Nebraskans, gnarly narcoleptic nebulas, and novel novels about nut-eating narwhals and novercaphobic gnats.

-Jeremy :)

P.S.—I’m currently offering autographed/personally-inscribed copies of my novel, Vacation, with free shipping for those in the US. If there’s anything you could do to help me spread the word about this, I’d really appreciate it. Feel free to click here for details:

Alicia Don has a lot of great books. If only he'd lend me some...


Books Ring Mah Bell You must enjoy the work... designing kids books. There's a few on your list my son would love! You creative people... I can't draw a stick person and can hardly write a coherent grocery list.


Elizabeth Belated Happy new year to you Don!
