“Grandchildren are the reward you get for not killing your children.”
- Virginia Ironside

This is an auction for THE VIRGINIA MONOLOGUES: TWENTY REASONS WHY GROWING OLD IS GREAT, by Virginia Ironside. reviews:

"FIVE STARS! Virginia Ironside says so much that I have thought myself about the fun of growing older. Very funny, I laughed a lot, but also some good advice about giving yourself permission to be who you want to be, rather than fitting in with others' ideas. Easy to dip in and out of, a good laugh, and we all know how helpful that is!" |

"FIVE STARS! This book is positive and funny and makes you feel happier about it. I liked the book a lot and am going to buy it for my best friend who, like myself, is approaching the senior citizen years."

"FIVE STARS!!! Couldn't believe this book, hugely funny but eerily echoing my own thoughts and feelings on reaching 66. Somehow this number had seemed worse than all the others but this book made me laugh at myself and realise I AM NOT ALONE. And, what's more, it's not going to get better. At least I can laugh at it now."

"FIVE STARS! Love this book. Great to dip in and out of. Anyone over 50 will love it. Confirms all those things you think but think twice about saying in public. Well written. HIghly recommend."

"FIVE STARS!! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. She is an extremely amusing writer and had me laughing out loud several times."
