With wisdom and humour, forty-one remarkable, mature women over 50 revel in the joys of aging.

Nora Ephron struck a chord with I Feel Bad about My Neck. Women''s advocate and acclaimed writer Shari Graydon set out to counter the supposed downhill slide-inspired grief by inviting notable women of age from across Canada -- all over 50 -- to provide an alternative perspective.

I Feel Great about My Hands is a collection of stories, essays and poems celebrating life, and embracing the changes, discoveries and wisdom that come with age. This colourful anthology includes:

  • Gemini award-honoured funnywoman Mary Walsh on playing a "big, loud, opinionated old bag"
  • Celebrated poet Lorna Crozier''s hilariously graphic "My Last Erotic Poem"
  • Val Napoleon, an adopted Gitksan member of Cree heritage applying Aboriginal trickster tales to modern attitudes about aging gracefully
  • Shari Graydon herself focusing her "face-half-unwrinkled" attention on the hands that have helped her nurture life and express creativity and joy

Royalties from the book will benefit Media Action, an organization dedicated to challenging the under-representation and sexualization of women in the media.

Shari Graydon is an award-winning women''s advocate and bestselling author of two media literacy books for youth, Made You Look and In Your Face. Past president of the non-profit women''s group MediaWatch (now Media Action), she lectures frequently about media and body image issues from her home base in Ottawa.
