‘A veteran writer’s ruminations about a key transition point in life that has gotten surprisingly little literary attention: retirement. . . . The quiet testimony of a man whose ongoing writing, editing, reading, gardening, traveling and ceaseless quest for self-knowledge make him much less retired than many people half his age.’ –Adam Hochschild, author of King Leopold’s Ghost
