Sparkling with wit and wisdom, Old Seems to be Other People, Lily Brett’s unique take on getting older, is simultaneously hilarious, serious and utterly irresistible.

'People assume that if you are female and over 70 you are oblivious to men’s good looks. No one would blink if a 99-year-old man wearing an oxygen mask mentioned a good-looking woman ...' Most of us would like to live to an old age, but few of us actually want to be old. In this disarming, intimate and self-deprecating collection of vignettes about ageing, Lily Brett gives us snapshots of her life in New York. After avoiding a large dog that turns out to be a fire hydrant, and mistaking a tall, grey-haired woman for her husband, Lily has to concede that her ophthalmologist is right – she does need cataract surgery. She’s transfixed by a speed-dating dinner at a local cafe, and is told they also have speed-dating dinners for seniors. In the crowded Apple store, in Soho, two young Apple assistants decide it will take both of them to help her.

'One of our most witty and candid novelists and poets.'
The Australian Financial Review
