At the age of 61, Meredith Maran’s life fell apart: her long, happy marriage ended, her father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, her best friend died of ovarian cancer, and she lost her life savings to a Madoff-type broker. She briefly considered spending her remaining years under the covers, but instead she moved to Los Angeles and re-started her life from scratch—in Hollywood, of all places. Meredith’s brand-new memoir, The New Old Me: My Late-Life Reinvention, is her story of coming apart and putting herself back together again, with some unexpectedly delightful results.
