About the Author
Praise For Out of Time: The Pleasures and Perils of Ageing…
"Out of Time is a thoughtful, reflective book. It encourages people to keep dreaming, keep fighting, and perhaps most of all keep living." —Pop Matters
"In this courageous study, Lynne Segal addresses the vicissitudes of ageing, a process that lies in wait for us all. She turns on the subject a critical eye honed by social psychology, psychoanalysis, feminism and radical politics. An original, probing and unsettling exploration." Stuart Hall, author of Representation
"It’s about time for a book like Out of Time, compassionate, seasoned, honest, and wise, which asks questions about age but aims to enlighten, rather than frighten us. Read on!"
Elaine Showalter, author of A Jury of Her Peers
"An international treasure … her beautifully written, deeply engrossing work … will inspire new generations."—Barbara Ehrenreich
"One of the most capacious readers of feminism and sexuality studies I have ever encountered."—Judith Butler
"Passionate, lucid, and shockingly candid … a clarion call to those who see feminism as a redundant cause."—Helen Walsh
