The debut au­thors

fea­tured in our third an­nual 5 Over 50 have all demon­strated the pa­tience and re­silience that is re­quired of any­one who is de­voted to writ­ing as a life­long art. What makes them spe­cial is not sim­ply the qual­ity of their first books and the depth of char­ac­ter they ex­press in the fol­low­ing es­says, but also that they’ve al­ready achieved so much, in­clud­ing ob­tain­ing the wis­dom and per­spec­tive that comes from liv­ing a bit of one’s life. Here, in their own words, we present five au­thors over the age of fifty whose debut books were pub­lished this year.
