Mac over sixty and recently unemployed lives on his wife?s earnings from her furniture restoration business. An avid reader, he decides at the age of sixty to keep a diary. Mac?s wife, Carmen, a dyslexic born of dyslexic parents, thinks he is simply wasting his time and risking sliding further into depression-but Mac persists, and is determined that this diary will not turn into a novel.
