Literary Nonfiction. California Interest. Women's Studies. Memoir. The wry and relatable narrator of GRAY IS THE NEW BLACK—a memoir of ageism, sexism and self-acceptance—came of age in the psychedelic sixties. Now in her sixties, it's time to take stock. After decades struggling to be thin enough, pretty, sexy and successful enough to deserve love and happiness, she devotes a year to cracking the code, a journey that forces her to confront the gnarled roots of female shame.
