The Third Half of Our Lives

Author Jon Foyt Releases New Literary Senior Adult Fiction - The Third Half of Our Lives

Author Jon Foyt is pleased to announce the release of his literary old adult novel, The Third Half of Our Lives. Released by Andrew Benzie Books in July 2019, The book is already receiving rave reviews from readers and reviewers.

Two men reflect on what went right and wrong during their long lives in this novel. Socratic dialogue on growing very old. These two men of the Silent Generation might not confront any of the really intriguing issues—from their white maleness to the sex lives of octogenarians—but they do hit the classics: parenthood, accomplishments, and the point of it all. A philosophical tale about two men in old age.

“The Third Half of Our Lives” is a dialogue between two old guys living in a fictionalized retirement community as they think back about their lives, their marriages, their families, while engrossed in their very different stamp collections, and cope with everyday concerns living amidst senior women and men.

Both Kirkus Reviews and celebrated author Maxine Hong Kingston call the book “Socratic” in its dialogue.

The Third Half of Our Lives is available for purchase in print and ebook formats.
