Richard Alther, Author

ā€œIn my professional painting career, over a number of years I sold several hundreds of paintings at galleries from London and Montreal to Vermont and California. They slid down easily, watercolor and oil landscapes or waterscapes barely defined, very impressionistic, which I came to realize was a way to express my world view before writing fiction. ..the view that places healing, calming, restorative nature above the flak of modern life. This spirit is very much at the soul of ROXIE & FRED.ā€

~ Richard Alther

“Readers will enjoy the warm-hearted celebration of this zesty old woman savoring the hell out of her final years.”

~ Judith Viorst, journalist and bestselling author of
I'M TOO YOUNG TO BE SEVENTY
