Evelyn Wolfe is now eighty--nine years old. Her first memoir, Stray Cats & Other Loves: Growing up Jewish in Toronto was published in 2004 to rave reviews in the Globe & Mail, Canadian Jewish News and the Toronto Star.
After the Ball is Over is a continuation of her first memoir. It's a story of the 'zoomer' generation and deals with issues of aging, the death of the author's husband, friends and family, a new romance, grandchildren, bridge, travel and how to keep active and adventurous in your '80s. Wolfe, indeed, is "a born raconteur" and has always been able to connect with people, the famous and less--than--famous.
Her new book, like her previous one, is written with immense courage, marked by its personal honesty, openness and candor. It is full of insight, humour, pathos and pain, a joy of life and living, but also the reality of aging.
