What people said about the first edition of Fierce with Reality: "The richness of this volume mirrors the richness of aging here and around the world. Cruikshank has skillfully woven together glimpses of what it is like to grow old. The uniqueness of this text is its diversity. International perspectives combine with work by a variety of U.S. writers. Cruikshank reclaims the word "old" as an honorable one." Jean K. Quam, Ph.D. Professor and Director, School of Social Work University of Minnesota " . such a sharing of the nonlinear nature of time may liberate people of all ages. Particularly, it may broaden the understanding of those who are privileged to serve the old in their final years. Jean Gould, Editor of Season of Adventure: Traveling Tales and Outdoor Journeys of Women over Fifty "Open to any page and find a gem on aging, about 80 percent by women. Women from diverse cultures and lifestyles. Some names recognizable, some new to writing."
