Late love : a celebration of marriage after fifty by Eileen B Simpson( Book )

6 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The young think of marriages between older people as sexless, but what do they know? Such marriages can be among the best relationships we ever have. Simpson discovers that in an era of increased life expectancy and improved health, late marriages are often surprisingly erotic, though love still comes before sex. Many older people return to long-lost lovers from their youth, while some yearn to find a different kind of partner from their first or early flames

Poets in their youth : a memoir by Eileen B Simpson( Book )

18 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1942, Eileen Simpson'then Eileen Mulligan'married John Berryman. Both were in their twenties; Eileen had just graduated from Hunter College and John had but one slim volume of poetry to his name. They moved frequently'from New York to Boston, then Princeton'chasing jobs, living simply, relying on the hospitality of more successful friends like Robert Lowell and Jean Stafford, or R.P.

Everyone stayed up late arguing about poetry. Poets in Their Youth is a portrait of their marriage, yes, but it is also a portrait of a group of spectacularly intelligent friends at a particular time, in a particular place, all aflame with literature.

Filled with winning anecdotes and moments of startling poignancy, Simpson's now classic memoir shows some of the most brilliant literary minds of the second half of the twentieth century at their brightest and most achingly human
