If you’re alive, you’re aging . . . but You Can’t Iron a Wrinkled Birthday Suit smashes senior living stereotypes! Zany families, eccentric friends, and ne’er-do-well neighbors inhabit the labyrinthine lives of three women friends as they live through one puzzling “Golden Year.” A surprise visit from local law enforcement, a younger friend’s romantic disasters, and the death of a parent all combine with daily life—laundry, scones, senior sex—to create one walloping, raucous read. Loquacious pets—critics and alter egos—offer a rich counterpoint to the human dramas affecting their lives.

Unfiltered and compelling, this entertaining saga provides readers of all ages with a new and positive view of growing older.

    I liked both the animal and human characters and their observations of the current happenings. It was a feel good read.

    When I first began reading this book I thought "great, a bookAbout old women - how boring". I'm 63 years old but yet these were "old women". I read on and found myself highly entertained by these well developed characters. I hope there's a sequel so I can read more about their lives.
