At seventy-six years of age, Gibbons has outlived most of her contemporaries. She has crafted a unique and interesting life, one that has taken her from her childhood home in the rural South, to a stint as a mathematics professor at a small, liberal arts college in upstate New York, to a long and successful career as a writer. Gibbons has made a significant contribution to American literature, and On the Occasion of My Last Afternoon is her most accomplished work. The novel tells the story of a day in the life of Gibbons, from the time she wakes up in her home in the early hours of the morning to the time she retire for the night. The novel is filled with insights into Gibbons's character and her life, as well as a reflection on the state of the world around her. Gibbons's descriptions of the people and places she encounters are both beautiful and heartbreaking.; 8vo ; 318 pages; Signed by Author.
