Younger Than Springtime
"John Ashe is a fifty-year-old lawyer with all the trappings of success - money, swell home in the leafy suburbs of New York, smart wife, multitalented son - everything but what he wishes for: another turn at the wheel, back to the youth allegedly wasted on the young." "His passport to the days of raging hormones, clear eyes, tight skin, and a marathoner's stamina is Elena, the drop-dead gorgeous paralegal he hires, against all the prevailing wisdom at his firm. And for a while life is grand again: his affair with this woman half his age goes beyond the pages of the Kama Sutra; all aches and pains in his legs disappear, he buys a Porsche and divorces his wife, completely transforming his old life, professional and social." "But the liberated Ashe is not the seemingly mature, sophisticated man who first attracted his young woman, and when she leaves him, so too does his youthful prowess. When yet another assistant at his firm bids to transport him, has he, one wonders, learned to realize that there is something to be said for aging gracefully?"--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
