A New York Times Bestseller
A New York Times Editors' Choice
A #1 Washington Post Bestseller

"A superb new book . . . A generational cri de coeur. . . . Mr. Kinsley possesses what is probably the most envied journalistic voice of his generation: skeptical, friendly, possessed of an almost Martian intelligence." --Dwight Garner, The New York Times

"Wickedly funny. . . . Especially poignant. . . . Among all the books published in recent years about old age and dying, it would be hard to find one that is more fun to read than Old Age." --Reeve Lindbergh, The Washington Post

"Kinsley brings wisdom and artfully suppressed anger, wistful humor, well-pitched prose, and the bite of the thinker against the pretenses of the world. . . . Old Age is not a little book about economics or Parkinson's disease, but it is a big little book about what happens when we begin to think beyond who has won the race." --Peter Stothard, The Wall Street Journal

"If aging is an opponent, I can't think of anyone better suited to take it on than Michael Kinsley. His prodigious wit and intellect cut straight through to the realities--positive and negative--of growing older. By turns funny and rueful, but always real, this book is a must-read for newcomers to the world of old age." --Michael J. Fox

"Hilarious. . . . Witty. . . . If it's possible for a book about illness and death to be delightful, this one fills the bill." --Phillip Lopate, The New York Times Book Review

"Old Age is irreverent, wise, and laugh-out-loud funny about living long enough for your organs to start to betray you. Count on Michael Kinsley to write the book about life you didn't know you needed." --Atul Gawande

"Michael Kinsley, a favorite around here, has written a smart, funny, and profound little memoir." --Pamela Paul, The New York Times Book Review

"A wise and edgy guide to old age. . . . A humorous but penetrating look at the issues the baby-boomer generation should consider as it confronts life's last phase." --The Seattle Times

"A wise and funny journey that manages to make mortality itself an energizing subject." --Money.com
