9780091886653: Growing Old Disgracefully: How to upset and perplex your children with increasingly erratic and unreasonable behaviour

Does your mother think it's really charming to talk to every rose bush on the street? Has your father taken up obsessive fundraising for a donkey sanctuary on retirement? Does he collect elastic bands because 'you never know when you'll need one'? Do your parents make jokes about sheltered housing? Have they guessed that you've already sent off for the brochures? Do they seem to be having too much fun for a couple with two fake hips, a pacemaker and three steel pins between them? Then you need Rohan Candappa.

The man who bought you The Little Book of Stress, The Little Book of Wrong Shui and The Autobiography of a One Year Old has hit the nail on the head once more. Full of wit and wisdom, Rohan will give you a much needed laugh in the face of your parents' increasingly barmy behaviour. Just one thing, you'll probably find your parents have bought it too. And they'll probably think its really funny.

From the Publisher:

Extremely funny new title from bestselling humorist Rohan Candappa, for grown-up children and dotty parents alike.

From the Back Cover:

Do you really want to embrace old age? Wouldn't you rather wrestle it to the floor and then sweet talk it into coming away with you for a dirty weekend in Barcelona?

Bestselling humourist Rohan brings his wisdom to bear on the tricky business of growing old, whilst having fun and annoying your stuffy children. Useful tips include where best to leave the donkey sanctuary brochures, having told your offspring that you're currently rewriting your will; knitting patterns for peek-a-boo thermals; and joy riding techniques for the over-60s (break into your own car and drive round town really slowly with Radio 4 on full blast).

Growing Old Disgracefully - a self-help manual for those who want to grow old without growing up.
