As We Are Now: A Novel

'“A brief, strong statement . . . A convincing record of evil done and good intentions gone astray . . . A powerful indictment.” —The New York Times Book Review“May Sarton has never been better than she is in this beautiful, harrowing novel about being old, unwanted, yet refusing to give up. . . . The problems of old age have been detailed by sociologists but only a novel as searching and deeply felt as this one can bring them so close to the bone.” —The Boston Globe“An important, brilliant novel, dealing with the problem we’d all rather close our eyes to. As I read, I shared the anger and the righteous indignation which I felt behind every line. But more than this, the anger and indignation are always contained by compassion, compassion which purges and redeems.” —Madeleine L’Engle'
