At Seventy: A Journal

May Sarton

23881041

May Sarton is famous for her poetry, plays and novels, but it is her journals that speak to me the most. She writes about the tension she feels with the tug and pull between her love of solitude and the joy she experiences with groups of people, the pleasures of living alone and the worry about her independence as she ages.

I recommend this book to anyone living alone at this age and curious about how another person experiences the milestone.
