Nicole Hollander Interviewed on NPR About Upcoming Book

Sylvia creator Nicole Hollander was on NPR yesterday talking about her new book called “Tales of Graceful Aging from the Planet Denial.” The book is a humorous look at getting older. The book was published by Broadway book.

From the description of the book:

Nicole Hollander grew up in the nineteen-fifties, when women of a certain age put on weight, got a really tight perm, and rode the backs of their house slippers into the ground. Oh, for those uncomplicated good old days. Today, your fifties and sixties are deemed your most creative years–you can’t lie around like a slug unless you suddenly want to be seventy with nothing to show for it. Luckily, in “Tales of Graceful Aging from the Planet Denial,” Nicole, creator of the beloved “Sylvia” comic strip and one of the pioneers of the genre of humor about women and their cats, guides us through the important decisions that come in one’s mature years: Accept the senior citizen discount or feign indignation? Get plastic surgery or just a really good haircut?
