Summary
More than twelve million Americans will soon live in age-segregated communities, under restrictive covenants, and with limited local government. Blechman delves into life in the senior utopia and offers an entertaining first-hand report on all its peculiarities--from ersatz nostalgia and golf-cart manina, to manufactured history and the residents' surprisingly active sex life. This is an important book on an underreported phenomenon that is growing larger everyday
Summary
An engaging portrait of life in America's growing number of gated retirement communities offers a firsthand analysis of a major trend in American society as growing numbers of baby boomers retire, examines the peculiarities of living in these senior utopias, and assesses the social, cultural, and family implications of this increasingly popular phenomenon
