Bette Davis said 'Old age ain't no place for sissies'.

If that's true, we could all use a little help as we approach our twilight years.

Translator Tom Payne turns to Ovid, Seneca, Hippocrates, Plato, Aristotle, and Aristophanes to discover invigorating counsel on mental decline, medicine, late love affairs, death and legacy.

This lively tour of ancient attitudes to ageing, supplemented by a translation of Cicero's 'On Old Age', reveals the true art of growing old gracefully.
