Out of Time, by Lynne Segal, is a fascinating look at aging and the differences between perceptions of women and of men as they age–both their own perceptions, and the perceptions of others. Of particular note is the work of May Sarton, who I was not familiar with, but who journaled her own life over many years even after having a stroke. It’s interesting to note how aging male movie actors and television personalities are portrayed vs. how their female counterparts are portrayed. Old men can be distinguished, but old women are mostly just pitiable in the media. This 5-star book has sparked an interest in researching gender and aging for myself, and certainly reading some May Sarton.
