This is the story of a life that has spanned much of the twentieth century. It is the story of a long and happy marriage, of advances in women's rights, of forging a career as a writer (including the excitement of a big Hollywood film sale), of the sometimes bewildering pace of progress, and of raising a family in a rapidly changing world. With her wit, insightful storytelling, and keen ear for offbeat anecdotes, Nardi Reeder Campion speaks for a generation that has traveled from the roaring twenties into the twenty-first century. Campion's address to a reunion of her Wellesley College class of 1938 has earned her a niche in cyberspace. it combines Campion's charm, wisdom, and self-deprecating humor. She has now written a memoir distinguished by those same qualities.
