Now I am going to recommend it to you.
Hendrick Groen is, as he describes it, one of the inmates of an assisted living facility in Amsterdam. Out of a bit of boredom, he decides to keep a secret diary cataloging the indignities of aging and the curious ways of his peers as well as the staff and administration of the facility. He manages to catalog the joys and the wisdom and the friendships as well. In other words, the dignities of aging are also evident.
The book is funny and sad in turns. It's recognizable as life. You will know some of these people, I'll guarantee.
I noticed that there is a follow up book on the new books shelf at my local library. I look forward to reading that one soon.
