Product Details

Praise

Swan Song covers a lot of ground and embraces a divergent array of tones … A journey worth taking.”–Michael Upchurch, Seattle Times

“The language is so delicious, I keep re-reading each chapter just to savor it again.”–Janis Ian, singer-songwriter of “At Seventeen” and “Society’s Child”

“Alther has looked into the heart of late-in-life grief and divested it of the maudlin; the result is something smarter, darker, and better … Wistful but resolutely unsentimental.”–Shelf Awareness (starred review)

“Alther infuses the book with delightful comic elements … [she] is an entertaining, yet challenging guide on this well-crafted voyage of transformation and yearned-for societal change.”–A! Magazine

“A female coming-of-age tale that’s bound to resonate profoundly with those who are, like Jessie, in their ‘young old age’. Those who aren’t yet there will relish the novel’s wit, erudition, and charm, which come through on every page.”–Chapter16.org
