Publisher's Summary

This award-winning anthology of poetry and prose takes a new look at being a woman - particularly an aging woman - in a society that prizes and glorifies youth. The works are by both younger writers looking forward in time and writers who have experienced the joys and challenges of growing older. This international best seller was put together by editor Sandra Martz who selected the collection's pieces from thousands of submitted manuscripts.

Fantastic, Funny and Engaging

If you could sum up When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple in three words, what would they be?

Several good short stories of life, love and loss. Good humour and down to earth. Narrated with emotions and wit.
