In this fascinating book, originally published in 1989, Anne Smith records interviews with a group of octogenerian women, covering all social classes and a great variety of experience. She allows the women to speak for themselves, bringing to light the submerged history of ordinary women's lives. This book should be of interest to wide general readership, as well as students of British social history and women's studies.
