Curiosity and his own aging led Thomas R. Cole to seek out perspectives from men over eighty, a growing cohort in the United States. In his book titled, Old Man Country: My Search for Meaning Among the Elders
, Cole provides snippets of interviews with about a dozen old men, and intersperses aspects of his own life throughout. This short book broaches a topic many old men avoid, but I can assure readers that it’s safe to enter these waters. Whether a reader finds meaning or wisdom on these pages may depend on one’s individual situation. Ask me when I’m ninety if any of this makes sense.
