What does it mean to be a grandparent these days? Does it imply being a grey-haired home-body with arthritis and a jar of peppermints? Or is the modern reality more active and committed, juggling a career and busy social life, scrambling for the time and space to fit in the grandchildren? Barbara Else asked ten other top New Zealand writers how they have experienced grandparenthood. With with and wisdom they explore the pleasures and complications of this unique but archetypal experience. Their findings--revealing, amusing, touching and full of insight--build an important picture of this country's legacy both from the past and for the future.
