Cover: Now We Are Sixty
Posted on April 19, 2020
Now We Are Sixty is a collaboration between two sisters, one an award-winning writer, the other a renowned and highly collected artist, both in their early sixties. The full-color book – 9 ½ x 12 and 100 pages – pairs Pia’s short, tender memoir entries with Nina’s intuitive and improvisational inks on paper. Working side by side, the sisters, explore aging, their long marriages, their history growing up in a musical family, their violinist mother’s dementia, and their luck at being sisters. Pia, the eldest, lives with her husband and their dog, Ella, in New Orleans, Louisiana, close to her two stepsons and eight grandchildren, but across the pond from her grown son in London; Nina, the second born, lives in Carmel Valley, California with her husband, near their two children and three grandchildren. This book is the first in a series that navigates this next decade, and narrows the distance between sisters who enjoy any chance to be together.
