Dr. Coles introduces us to eleven men and women over the age of 75 living on their own.

[Introduction] This book was prompted by the long-standing interest of the Commonwealth Fund in the various fates of America's elderly people in the last years of the twentieth century.
Forty-one out of the fifty-two weeks in the year 1991 I came to visit here, so she told me early in 1992.
[Photographs by Alex Harris and Thomas Roma] The wok of the photographer is wordless--the silence of sight's explorations as they are rendered for us, the beholding "other."
