The tick of two clocks : a tale of moving on

Bakewell, Joan2022
Books, Manuscripts
When Joan Bakewell - Labour Peer, author and famous champion of the older people's right to a good and fruitful life - decided that she could no longer remain in her old home, she had to confront what she calls 'the next segment of life.' Disposing of things accumulated during a long life, saying goodbye to her home and the memories of more than fifty years, thinking about what is needed for downsizing - all suddenly became urgent and emotional tasks. In using the tale of her own life, Joan tells us a story of our times and how she is learning to live to the sound and tune of the tick of two clocks: the old and the new.
