In this hilarious and insightful memoir, 25-year-old Rodney Rothman, burned out from his big-city life, decides to get a jump start on the golden years . . . four decades before his time.
From the Publisher:
A former head writer for "David Letterman" recounts his decision to retire from big-city life in his mid-twenties, his relocation to South Florida, and his humorous experiences with the older retired senior crowd that comprises his new neighbors. Reprint. 60,000 first printing.
Annotation:
Comedy writer Rodney Rothman was feeling exhausted, overcommitted, and generally fed up, and so he decided to retire early--very early: at age 28, he headed for a Florida retirement community. There he discovered the joys of bingo, canasta, and gambling cruises. He also found an unexpected talent for shuffleboard, and had a humbling experience playing softball with people twice his age. Rothman lasted only six months, but during that time he made a difference to the lives of a few people, and was delighted to find that he regained his own zest for living.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"[H]is descriptions of the loneliness, the cliquishness, the slow-motion desperation of the place ring true and bittersweet. Most surprising is that his tales contain not an ounce of mean-spiritedness--this from someone who once wrote for David Letterman." - Neil Genzlinger 06/05/2005
