Product Overview

Rhoda's memoir covers almost nine decades of a life exuberantly lived. A first generation American, born in Chicago in the Year of the Horse, 1918, she lived and worked through several eras: the late 1920s, the depression years, the years of World War Two, and the postwar period in San Francisco in the Fifties and Sixties; Berkeley and the world in the Seventies, Eighties, Nineties, and the Ought Years.Funny, sexy, and emotionally honest, her stories will resonate with anyone who has swum against the current.Not afraid to change her life every twelve years, Rhoda has been an elementary school teacher, a journalist, a fashion designer/owner of her own business, as well as a leader in the field of training teachers to teach English as a second or foreign language. Working and traveling throughout the world (including a Fulbright to Korea at age 63, and an assistant professorship in China at 67), Rhoda shares her successes and failures in a story of survival.
