A Hundred Lives Since Then



In this updated version of “A Hundred Lives Since Then,” award-winning Star Tribune columnist Gail Rosenblum has gathered a collection of her wry observations on a host of experiences ranging from home remodeling and a parent’s late-life romance to a child’s show-and-tell and the neighborhood book club. With self-depreciating humor, she reminds us of how difficult it can be to hire a babysitter, how frightful to take a young child on an amusement park ride. She evokes the sense of vanishing time as a parent watches her children grow up and the frustration and sense of loss that accompany even the most well-mannered divorce. Her irrepressible humor is never far from the surface, but readers will also be struck—and moved—by her ability to expose the enduring significance of the most quotidian observations and events.
