Age and the Antique Sideboard
by Barbara Spencer

Dedicated to the more mature echelons of society and delightfully illustrated by Katie Beltrami, who just happens to be young, Barbara Spencer’s Age and the Antique Sideboard takes a fun-filled look at life, in which there are some extraordinary goings-on.

Age and the Antique Sideboard is the perfect gift for those difficult to buy for. Exhibiting a somewhat ‘pithy’ sense of humour, Barbara shares her travels, short stories and anecdotes from her successful writing career as well as her personal life. As she says: “Age and the Antique Sideboard versus a pair of socks for Christmas? No contest.”

"I decided long ago that you can either be cowed by the absurdities of life or lampoon them."

My love affair with both life and words began in 1969, when ‘Fashion’ Magazine paid me the goodly sum of £25 to write an article about travel. Other articles followed and from these humble beginnings came children’s books, full of rib-tickling humour and scintillating action.
However, my desire to wax lyrical about the absurdity of life remained and whilst journeying by train to some far distant school or to a signing at Waterstones, I began scribbling down my thoughts. Blogs, anecdotes and short stories followed. Now, of an age to remember the past, I thought, why not? There has to be heaps of people around like me … well, not exactly like me but near enough to enjoy and remember how life once was.

Age and the Antique Sideboard will be published in August 2017.
