The new diary from one of literature's most beloved octogenarians.
As Long As There is Life picks up where The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen left off, at the Dutch care home of the anarchic Old-But-Not-Dead Club. Despite the looming presence of old age Hendrik and his friends are determined to welcome their autumn years with optimism.
Written with his characteristic charm, humour and tenderness, Hendrik describes the quirks and adventures of his fellow residents, nurses and old age in general. Showing, yet again, that age is simply a number.
