At dawn, three women, all AARP-eligible, climb an extension ladder to the second story roof of the defunct McClellan five and dime building, a yellow brick structure scheduled for demolition.
Clad in black spandex, her Tide white hair stuffed under an ancient black bathing cap, seventy-something Grace reaches the top of the ladder. Gus, right behind her, hoists herself upward, bemoaning her over-fifty-and-a-few-pounds-too-heavy figure. She resembles an adventurous tortoise wearing a mis-matched black ensemble. Taking up the rear -- literally and metaphorically -- Hazel shifts her back and fanny packs to support the sling chair on her shoulder, all the while mumbling, “I think I can, I think I can.”
The women are storming the roof -- sixties protest style -- to halt the demise of this historic building. At nine a. m. the Lewis and Son Devoted Demolition crew will unleash their wrecking ball!
So begins You Can’t Iron a Wrinkled Birthday Suit and the adventures of these three “Golden” girlfriends with an escapade soon to have disproportionate repercussions. Despite a trial, a younger friend’s romantic foibles, the death of a parent, and even a natural disaster, these intrepid women continue to endure with optimism and energy, supported by their shamelessly anthropomorphized pets. Acting as foils, alter-egos, and critics, the sometime Greek Chorus of canine and feline friends helps the women live a humorous and uplifting alternative to stereotypic notions of the “Golden Years.”
381 pages in length, You Can't Iron a Wrinkled Birthday Suit is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the humorous fiction category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, You Can't Iron a Wrinkled Birthday Suit meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $19.95.
