A beautiful and luxurious portrayal of how to age with power and grace

Bolder Summary

Bolder: Life lessons from people older and wiser than you by Helen Cathcart

Bolder is on a mission to change perceptions about growing older. Old age tends to conjure up visions of loneliness, rocking chairs and possibly some tea and biscuits. But this book captures a journey to find people aged 70 and older who make old age look appealing or even -- gasp! -- fun.

This book is full of real people, not acting anything like their media-prescribed age, telling their inspirational stories. One of the stories in the book features a woman who fell in love and married, aged 82. Another centres around a man who swims a mile in the Mediterranean Sea every morning, aged 85. From well-known names including Zandra Rhodes, Barbara Hulanicki and Michel Roux, to lesser-known people who will become your new heroes, you won't be able to put this book down. Nearly all of the interviewees are still working or creating in some way. And so many of them cite the happiest time of life as now, not then.

This book champions people over the age of 70 who are still creating, inspiring or working, and the goal is to change perceptions about growing older. Chapters tackle the eternal themes of Success, Love & Sex, Happiness, Family, Health & Fitness, Style & Beauty, Work, Friends, Regrets and Death. Full of surprises and hilarity from 28 people who are anything but invisible, Bolder is full of life lessons that everyone can learn from.

Bolder Reviews

"A beautiful book which I am very in love with...So life-affirming and desperately needed in a culture that is so woefully phobic of age."

-- Dolly Alderton * The High Low *

About Helen Cathcart

Dominique Afacan has been editing luxury lifestyle magazines for over ten years. For the last four years, she's been based in London as a freelancer, but she also spent half a decade working as an editorial director in Hong Kong, as well as doing stints in New York and Milan. Her chosen niche of luxury travel has found her racing sailing yachts in St Barths, kayaking amidst humpback whales in Antarctica and falling over repeatedly in Courchevel.

Helen Cathcart is an experienced lifestyle photographer with a passion for food, travel and interiors. Over the course of her career, she's ridden with gauchos across Patagonia, hung out of helicopters in the Seychelles and driven across vast deserts - all in the name of that perfect shot. The likes of Yotam Ottlenghi, Tom Kerridge and countless other top chefs are no stranger to her lens - and her work is coveted and commissioned by the likes of Conde Nast Traveller, Vogue Russia, House and Garden and Australian Gourmet Traveller.
