    ITEM#: 3040200

    In addition to her poetry, Judith Viorst is the author of other books for adults, including the bestseller Necessary Losses and her comic novel, Murdering Mr. Monti, as well as fourteen children's books. She is the recipient of various awards for her poetry, journalism, and psychoanalytic writings. The mother of three sons, she lives in Washington, D.C., with her husband, political writer Milton Viorst.
    Judith Viorst is known and loved by readers of all ages, for children's books such asAlexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day; nonfiction titles, including the bestsellerNecessary Losses; and her collections of humorous poetry, which make perfect gifts for birthdays, Mother's Day, graduation, Christmas, Chanukah, or at any time of year.

    Now Judith Viorst looks at what it's like to be (gulp) fifty.

    Writing with the warmth and authenticity that have become her trademarks, Viorst once again demonstrates her uncanny ability to transform our daily realities into poems that make us laugh with recognition. Whether her subject is the decline of the body ("It's hard to be devil-may-care/When there are pleats in your derriere") or future aspirations ("Before I go, I'd like to have high cheekbones./I'd like to talk less like New Jersey, and more like Claire Bloom"), she always speaks directly to our condition. Her funny, compassionate poems shed a reassuring light on the fine art of aging, and will delight anyone who is now (or forever) fifty.
