Ageing Disgracefully is a delightful collection of short stories that takes a humorous and life-affirming look at lives of people who, though considerably advanced in years, are still behaving very, very naughtily.
With a keen eye for human foibles and a wicked sense of humor, Colin Cotterill has collected and illustrated—with words and drawings—the colorful lives of disreputable elders found along his life journey, from his old home, England, to his new home, Thailand, with stops in Australia the United States.
In Ageing Disgracefully we enter the minds of venerable and not so venerable elderly bank robbers, murderers and serial-killers, as well as mere practical jokers, gamblers and perverts, who may remind us of some people we know or live with, or perhaps a person who stares back at us in the mirror!
““How does the guy come up with this stuff? I thought he was still taking his medication. Cotterill’s characters are matchless, his stories, hilarious.”
—Kathy Reichs (Really famous)
