Thomas  Gottschalk - Autumn Bright


The refreshing life philosophy of the legendary entertainer

Reflective, witty, self-ironic and worldly-wise – Thomas Gottschalk takes a look at what the process of growing old entails. He describes the funny and painful sides of life beyond 65 as well as the positive corollaries. The tiresome struggle with those extra pounds, a curious fast-cum-hike, 40 days without any alcohol, and other attempts to keep up with the times all lead to one reassuring realisation: in spite of wrinkles and wear and tear (the knees, the back) – with equanimity and a good dose of optimism you can face the inevitable and grow old without getting bitter in the process.
