Late Bloomers looks at 75 remarkable individuals whose greatest achievements occurred or were recognized in the second half of their lives. Although these late bloomers come from various countries and social backgrounds, they have one thing in common: They all succeeded in making their later years productive and fulfilling. Through entertaining profiles by veteran New Yorker writer Brendan Gill, the stories of these resilient people unfold. Many, including Julia Child, didnt begin producing their lifes work until middle age. Some, such as Harry Truman, changed careers after many years. Still others, such as actor Boris Karloff, worked for years in their chosen professions before finding recognition. At once timely and timeless, Late Bloomers is an inspirational book for everyone who wants to believe that its never too late.
