Hit Home and Made Me Smile... 24. März 2002
Von laura mancuso - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I read the book several years back. I loaned it to a friend, and took a Job Transfer shortly thereafter.
Well, needless to say, I think the friend liked the book also.
So, today I am ordering it for my 2 daughters. They are approaching their 40's, and I know they will love it as much as I did.
The Author does an excellent job in depicting that which makes us smile at ourselves, as we grow older. She lets you know that growing old can be a lot of fun.
",,,I shall wear purple", is a very appropriate title. And, when a Woman nears that special time , OLD AGE, wearing purple is almost an unwritten rule.
The Author tells that in Old Age, you can get more respect. If for no other reason, than just being your Old Self.
I highly recommend reading at least twice. You'll never feel the same about yourself.
The picture on the cover and the poem that goes along with it,are alone worth the price of the Book.

I heard Jenny Joseph interviewed on NPR many years ago, and have since added a fair amount poetry and writing authored by women to the literature classes I teach. I have found this book to be particularly valuable as regards promoting an increased awareness of women - not just their writing - but also how the human condition is uniquely evinced and exemplified by the women in our world. I also feel that this is an excellent book for discussion and for helping young men begin - while YOUNG - to be sensitive to and respectful of women in general. Gentlemen seem to be a vanishing breed these days; perhaps this book's eloquent poetry and revealing anecdotes about women can help foster a bit more understanding and mutual appreciation. My wife and I have given several copies as gifts, and they have always been well-received.

I have been wearing purple since I was a teen...I should have started this movement... 20. Februar 2006
Von LadyInPurple - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Of course I had to have this poem...and all the little things about it, like the red hats I've suddenly acquired, my own Red Hat Chapter...I really have been wearing purple all these years, so that poem must have been stolen from my little book...

Now That I Am An Older Woman 7. August 2005
Von E. Welch - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The poem itself has been around for many years. Bought 3 copies of the book for 2 sisters and a friend - it has really good illustrations to go with the text. Everyone approaching 50 needs this!

Not what I thougt-but good if that is what you are looking for. 5. Juni 2010
Von d1nonly - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I bought it because the title was interesting. The booklet itself was a suggestion from amazon as I was perusing and purchasing books from the 'Red Hat Society'...which are all full-length paperback book and stories-not poems.
However-this one is on me for not checking..this is a small book, about the size of my hand, with 34 is an illustrated poem...From the title, I thought is was something totally different. Should have read the description. If this is what you are buying, then of course this is it...some very poignant-but also stereotypical-comments about those of us getting up that age-hill; maybe ordering this by accident was not really that accidental and this is God trying to tell me something. However, I am intensely averse to the color purple and hope my color vision shall be preserved for a long time-so as not to become that old woman who wears purple..other than that, my girl-friends and I will get a good laugh out of this...
