The New Old Me: My Late-Life Reinvention - Meredith Maran

I received this book through Goodreads in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this book. Maran's writing is very relatable even as she describes specific experience I have not personally had. She has a knack for describing the base emotion in a very relatable way. From grief to love, fear to joy, pain to acceptance, the experiences may not be the same, but the emotions felt certainly are. In this book, Maran recounts her divorce, breakup, losing her job, deaths and illnesses of friends and family, and other events. But mostly the book is about love, friendship, and independence.

Martin's writing is humorous and heart breaking, and everything in between, but most of all it is raw and real.

Great book.
