The Last Outrageous Woman
Eighty-six-year-old Mattie Snorgenson has had enough! She’s spent most of her life caring for family and fitting into polite society. Now, she is ready to follow her dream. Inspired by Mattie’s courage, four other senior women join her in escaping the boredom of life in their retirement home. Together they travel the world, each seeking to fulfill the one, secret desire she has always held. With help from a pierced, tattooed and dreadlocked granddaughter, the friends journey from Florida to the Emerald Isle, and from Tasmania to the markets of Egypt. When their story goes viral, surfers, hitchhikers, priests and a Crocodile Dundee impersonator pitch in to help the “outrageous grannies.” Even Doctor Phil gets into the act.

So Much Depends Upon: An Anthology
Behold the egg! Smooth, rounded, perfectly formed, fragile, its glowing center suspended in a malleable, translucent penumbra. The same might be said of these thirty-five memoirs in which the past–formed at the fragile nexus, the malleable boundary of memory and imagination–is suspended in prose, contained in an essay. You have but to crack open this book.
