Description of this Book

This book tells the stories of the older people around us - stories which are at once familiar and extraordinary.
A range of delightful and challenging fictionalised characters are beautifully presented with warm-hearted and absorbing honesty.
'This Old Stick' is an enjoyable and entertaining read, and a tool to help heal the disconnection that exists in society between those considered healthy and functional, and those who are older and considered less so.
We all need to be reminded of the gifts and precious treasure the elderly bring to our community.
