And she celebrates the views of Raymond Tallis, professor of geriatric medicine, who truly believes that old age can be a time of liberation: no children, time to do the things you want to do, provided you have enough money. I once went out shopping wearing my underpants on my head. The book ends with Kurtz looking at the aurora borealis in Alaska, a new experience, while she reflects on the past always welling up inside her. As you get older other people tell you what to do, or should do. A brief survey of the current systems in place for the care of the elderly in the UK reveals a bleak and troubling reality.

    Chock-a-block with opinions on books read, plays and films seen, stories of happy times spent with old friends such as Alan BennettIrene Worth and John Wells, and the joys of life at home in Hampshire, this diary is interspersed with poignant accounts of the death of friends and funerals attended. Style is how we live our lives and approach each day. What do I already do that is disgraceful? Perhaps, as with sex, the pleasure will lie longer in the looking and the hunt than ever in the possession.
