Eve Pell says, a few things improve with age: wine, cheese, friendship, and love. As she and the couples in this wise and warm book see it, life experience adds dimensions to the art of connection, enabling mature people to finesse issues that cause young couples conflict. In Love, Again: The Wisdom of Unexpected Romance, Pell not only shares the more intimate details of her own experience (marrying Sam, a widower, at 71 after two divorces of her own), but also reveals a dynamic picture of modern romance. Pell illuminates how more seniors than ever are looking for that "one last blossoming of the heart," and tackling everyday issues such as dealing with the emotions of family members, deciding where to live, and how to divide finances.
Eve Pell is the author of the acclaimed memoir We Used to Own the Bronx, in which she detailed her upbringing in a prestigious New York family and how she left that world of privilege for a career as an investigative reporter. She went on to report for three award-winning PBS documentaries and is an award-winning writer published in the San Francisco Chronicle,
The Nation, Ms., Runners World, and other publications. She has been a staff reporter at the Center for Investigative Reporting, has taught journalism at San Francisco State University and lectured at Stanford, and has won gold medals in international senior track and field competitions.
In "Love, Again, " Eve Pell beautifully and thoughtfully concludes that life experience adds dimensions to the art of connection and that we all stand to learn something from unexpected romance.
"How do old people meet new loves?"
