Sister Age Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Sister Age

In many but not all of the stories in this 1984 collection, Fisher addresses aging and death. Some are clearly autobiographical -- a lovely escape with her young daughters to Morro Bay, where a crusty fisherman charms them all and gentle proposes marriage; another trip with her daughters on an Atlantic cruise ship, at the conclusion of which an elderly female passenger dies; a startling but gentle encounter with an itinerant rug seller which might be regarded as sexual assault but the narrator describes as a sort of lovemaking -- and others are portraits of other people, several of them ghosts.
