Read The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen by Hendrik Groen. Technically speaking, Hendrik Groen is .... elderly. But at age 83 1/4, this feisty, indomitable curmudgeon has no plans to go out quietly. Bored of weak tea and potted geraniums, exasperated by the indignities of aging, Hendrik has decided to rebel — on his own terms. He begins writing an exposé secretly recording the antics of day-to-day life in his retirement home, where he refuses to take himself, or his fellow "inmates," too seriously.
