Abigail Thomas' new memoir "Still Life at Eighty"
In her new memoir, "Still Life at Eighty," Abigail Thomas ruminates on aging during the confines of COVID-19 with her trademark mix of humor and wisdom, including valuable, contemplative writing tips along the way.
As she approaches eighty, what she herself calls old age, Thomas accepts her new life, quieter than before, no driving, no dancing, mostly sitting in her chair in a sunny corner with three dogs for company - three dogs, vivid memories, bugs and birds and critters that she watches out her window.
Abigail Thomas worked as both a book editor and book agent before writing her own first collection of short stories, "Getting Over Tom." Her memoirs include, "A Three Dog Life" and "What Comes Next and How to Like It."
