Old Is In


Is impotence contagious? At what age should a senior be surgically separated from his automobile, or obligated to donate his sex toys to the Salvation Army?

These and other timely questions are among those not answered in Eric Nicol’s latest cure for serious reading, Old Is In. This palsied opus responds to demographics warning that our Western society is about to be engulfed by a tidal wave of seniors.

How to cope? Is stoicism the answer? Hell, no! The best way to relieve the stiff upper lip is with a smile. And that prescription is filled, merrily, by Eric Nicol’s Old Is In.


(A)warding-winning author, playwright, and newspaper columnist Eric Nicol has produced yet another highly satirical, amusing, and enjoyable book... If the energetic and witty Nicol is considered a role model for someone nearing his or her later years, then old is definitely in.
