Anthology of Tragedies & Triumphs is a moving collection of short stories, memoirs, and poems written by 17 seniors, nearly all in their 70s. It describes the simple, but often unexpected, "implications of growing old." The authors are from southwestern Ohio and meet at the University of Dayton's Lifelong Learning Institute. Stories are about an inscrutable bag lady, the dark side of "actually getting your wish," the crush of dealing with personal losses and family imbroglios. There is a story of a foundling who grew up to transform a whole village, a journey to "the other side," and the loving anguish of losing someone dear long, long ago. There is even a short golf lesson. Some excellent poetry opens up new ways of experiencing the years and embracing the positive. The book makes a useful, enjoyable guide to aging with happiness and foresight. At any age, your next Triumph is just around the corner.
