9781781682999: Out of Time: The Pleasures and the Perils of Ageing

In Out of Time, leading thinker Lynne Segal examines her life and surveys the work and lives of other writers and artists to explore the pleasures and perils of growing old. Following in the footsteps of Simone de Beauvoir - who in her mid-fifties mourned 'never again!' and yet was energetically writing in her sixties and seventies - Segal mixes memoir, literature and polemic to examine the inevitable consequences of staying alive. Who is that stranger who stares back from the mirror? What happens to ambition and sexuality? As millions of baby boomers approach their sixth or seventh decade, these questions are becoming increasingly urgent. Must the old always be in conflict with the young? How can we deal with the inevitability of loss and find victory in survival? Brilliant, moving and challenging, Out of Time is an urgent and necessary corrective to the assumptions and taboos that constrain the lives of the aged.

Revue de presse :

 "So what does it mean to age gracefully? How is this done? These questions are at the centre of a thoughtful new book from Lynne Segal" – Economist

" Out of Time is a thoughtful, reflective book. It encourages people to keep dreaming, keep fighting, and perhaps most of all keep living." — Pop Matters 

"In this courageous study, Lynne Segal addresses the vicissitudes of ageing, a process that lies in wait for us all. She turns on the subject a critical eye honed by social psychology, psychoanalysis, feminism and radical politics. An original, probing and unsettling exploration." Stuart Hall, author of Representation

"It’s about time for a book like Out of Time, compassionate, seasoned, honest, and wise, which asks questions about age but aims to enlighten, rather than frighten us. Read on!"
Elaine Showalter, author of A Jury of Her Peers

"An international treasure … her beautifully written, deeply engrossing work … will inspire new generations."—Barbara Ehrenreich

"One of the most capacious readers of feminism and sexuality studies I have ever encountered."—Judith Butler

"Passionate, lucid, and shockingly candid … a clarion call to those who see feminism as a redundant cause."—Helen Walsh

From the Hardcover edition.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

A brave book with a polemical argument on the paradoxes, struggles and advantages of aging.

How old am I? Don’t ask, don’t tell. As the baby boomers approach their sixth or seventh decade, they are faced with new challenges and questions of politics and identity. In the footsteps of Simone de Beauvoir, Out of Time looks at many of the issues facing the aged—the war of the generations and baby-boomer bashing, the politics of desire, the diminished situation of the older woman, the space on the left for the presence and resistance of the old, the problems of dealing with loss and mortality, and how to find victory in survival.
