In my humble opinion “Strictly for Seniors” is a misnomer. This book can be enjoyed by anyone of legal drinking age. Sid Nachman is an amazing author, who invites us into “a secret place deep down inside himself where pain and fear collide, where he can hide and make everything bad disappear.”

Like James Joyce, Sid Nachman can take the ordinary and turn it into magic with a fluency that is imperceptible. There are no awkward moments. Our disbelief is suspended and we fly to another world of street games played between rows of parked cars, to the daily adventures of people living in the 1940’s and ’50’s, the good, bad and indifferent. “The world was a much different place…” Read “Strictly for Seniors” and discover the magic of this “much different place.” You’ll be glad that you did.

    Dennis. Your review makes me tremble at the thought I have a friend like you. I hope I can continue to live up to your praise. As an aside, Strictly for Seniors is copyrighted as, “A View From My Navel” but the people in Amazon placed it with books about Navy warfare. So I changed it although I never liked the new title.
