Everyone says they would like to retire early, but comedy writer Rothman actually did it--forty years early. Burnt out, he decides at age 28 to get an early start on his golden years. He moves in with an elderly piano teacher at a retirement village in Boca Raton, Florida, that is home to thousands of senior citizens. As he struggles for acceptance from the senior citizens, the day-to-day dealings begin to wear on him. But as the months pass, his neighbors seem to forget that he is fifty years younger than they. Any reader who plans on becoming an old person will enjoy joining Rodney on his strange journey, as he reconsiders his notions of romance, family, friendship, and ultimately, whether he's ever going back to work.--From publisher description.
