Life & Old Age
A Commonplace Book
By Joan Rockwell
Born to a Jewish Latvian immigrant and a mother from a wealthy Boston family in New York City, Joan Rockwell made her home in many places around the world. She was an artist, teacher and mother, but also became active in the feminist movement and earned a Ph.D. in sociology as a middle-aged woman. This experience, in addition to her sharp observation of human nature and wry humor, make this book anything but commonplace.
