At Eighty-Two: A Journal

'“It is the slow approach of death that gives At Eighty-Two much of its interest. In spite of inexorable physical decline, Sarton sticks as closely as she can to the accustomed routine of a solitary author. . . . But at the same time, she is making ready for the inevitable last act.” —The New York Times“Reporting from the front lines on the author’s daily battle with a body and a mind that increasingly refuse to cooperate, At Eighty-Two captures this struggle with a simplicity, elegance and strength that are characteristic of its author and her lifetime of work.” —Philadelphia City Paper“This journal takes us from the highs to the lows of old age: a visit from Susan Sherman, close friend and editor, is a joy; a session with biographer Margot Peters gives Sarton the chilling feeling that she is losing control of her own life. Finally, the discursive narrative comes together as a poignantly intimate portrait of a literary life.” —Publishers Weekly'
