The Other Side of 80!

This is the third book of illustrated poems by 85-year-old artist and poet, Wendy Barker, who hails from Bushman’s River Mouth, near Port Alfred in the Eastern Cape.
This time, she is looking at some of the situations of old age in a humorous way.
Most of the ideas expressed are personal experiences, and some are observed situations and some are imagined.
The pen sketches are comical and are intended to, hopefully, bring amusement and light into situations that are not always comfortable for those experiencing life over 80 – and those around them!
Wendy brings a razor-sharp appreciation of life on “The Other Side of 80”, touching on situations and events most of us might prefer to ignore!
