Every Day Is Sunday

Ralph Schoenstein, Author Little Brown and Company $0 (158p) ISBN 978-0-316-77428-4
This witty and winning book by a prolific humorist (I Hear America Mating and The I-Hate-Preppies Handbook, etc.) will especially amuse those under age 60 and probably those beyond as well. Schoenstein visited retirement communities from New York and New Jersey to Florida, Arizona and California and here reports on what he found. Most of the residents of these isolated villages (some of the settlements are large enough to be called cities) are content indeed to be where they are. There is homogeneity of population, security is tight and, above all, families with young children are excluded. Not all residents, of course, find retirement villages blissful and Schoenstein, himself 51, has a special affinity for them. His self-mockery and his wry observations about the communities he called at make his survey vastly entertaining. Foreign rights: William Morrow. January 21
