Now We Are Sixty Set - 2 Books (book)


Childhood is confusing enough, but compared with middle age it's a doddle. When Christopher Matthew was six, the poems of AA Milne were always on hand to reassure him that other children were just as puzzled and naughty and foolish as he was, and that grown-ups could be even sillier. Now he is sixty, he has decided it's high time there was an equally reassuring volume for those of his generation who are not only more confused than ever, but are losing their teeth, their hair and, all too often, their car keys. In this double dose of hilarity, Christopher Matthew has taken some of Milne's best-loved poems and has rewritten them for sixty- and seventy-year-olds, with results that are often hilarious, sometimes rueful and always thought-provoking.
