No! I Don't Want to Join A Book Club
Diary of A Sixtieth YearLarge Print - 2007
Stand aside, Bridget Jones. Here comes sassy curmudgeon Mary Sharp. Don't pester Mary about taking parasailing lessons, Italian-language courses or joining a gym. She may be a little creaky in the bones as she heads for the Big 6-0, but she's fine with it. Mary has already led an exciting life - she came of age in the 60s, after all. Now, with a new grandchild and a new man on the horizon, all she wants is to enjoy this new phase of her life. A wonderfully astute novel based on the author's own experiences, No! I Don't Want to Join a Book Club is a funny, and often poignant, diary of an older woman a little past her prime, but happy enough to leave it behind her and see what the future has in store. So don't tell Mary Sharp to take a gourmet cooking class - and whatever you do, don't tell her to join a book club.
