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.
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.


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
