Built loosely on her much-loved Guardian column – “Just 70” – “The View from Here” is Bakewell’s discerning and heartwarming account of life at 70 and beyond. A household name and a popular radio and TV broadcaster, Bakewell is the ideal ambassador for challenging what being 70 can mean for women today. All of life, including the taboos of old age, are here – work, family, love, sex, body and death – written about with humour, warmth, and Bakewell’s characteristic verve and intelligence.
