Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Feisty, indomitable curmudgeon Hendrik Groen, age 83 1/4, has begun secretly recording the antics of day-to-day life in his retirement home. With a group of friends he founds the wickedly anarchic Old-But-Not-Dead Club, enraging the home's humourless director and making himself an unlikely hero. And when a sweet and sassy widow moves in next door, he attempts to make something of the life he has left, with hilarious and tender consequences. Charming, inspiring, poignant, and laugh-out-loud funny, this is a page-turning delight for anyone who still feels like a kid at heart." -- Provided by the Publisher.
