Summary
"Drawing on literary examples, this book helps readers better understand the full range of issues that older men face--from legacy and loss to health issues and grace. Looking at how older men's lives are documented in American fiction, the author examines works by some of the most important names in contemporary literature including Don DeLillo, Jonathan Franzen, Cormac McCarthy, Marilynne Robinson, Philip Roth, Jane Smiley, Anne Tyler, and John Updike"--
