    1. I disagree with Irma. There are so many angles to this book – Gaps of understanding between generations
      Gaps of cultural understanding between immigrants and their 1st generation children
      Differences between cultures
      Differences in how younger adults imagine their elders’ lives. Can our adult children imagine that seniors can enjoy a sexually satisfying life – and miss it when their partner dies? The tragic parts of the story reflect the results of forcing people to do or be what doesn’t work for them. Just look at the current news about Princess Mako marrying a commoner. Yes, I was amazed by the books erotic aspects – how daring! How daring for Senior Planet choosing this book. Thank you. Look forward to the discussion.
