Martine Franck fixes her gaze, with respect, plain truth, and wisdom, on old people who she has met in Provence and in China, in London and in Bern, at the Académie Française and at the Hospice d’Ivry, in India and in the Paris suburb Nanterre. But her journey here is more of an exploration of time than a route through space.
Like a quiet meditation, this is a book that does old age justice. It’s subject is the truth about life, which implies accepting its course and knowing where it is headed: toward its end.
