In Old Women Talking, Wilderness Sarchild confronts head on the specter of aging that terrifies so many of us. She wrestles honestly with wrinkles, fear of dementia, the loss of friends and loved ones, and demands of herself that she say yes to aging and yes to the fact of her own eventual death. This is a necessary collection and strong medicine for all of us.

 

Marge Piercy, New York Times Best Selling Author

 

This book offers exactly the kinds of old women's voices our world needs to hear: strong, sexy, and loving. Wilderness Sarchild is a beacon of passion and wisdom. These compelling, honest poems will change lives.
