A shift in tone occurs abruptly at the book’s conclusion when Mimi becomes seriously ill. Here, Schwarz’s knee-slapping humor quickly melts into memorable sadness and reflection. A colorful, bittersweet romp through Old Fartdom.

Synopsis

This is love... You'll laugh a lot, you'll learn a lot, and you'll probably shed some tears.

This is the story of my 56-year marriage to Mimi. Starting with an improbable and whacky meeting in Germany in 1956, it chronicles our trips through Europe and Asia, and our lives in the US during my career as a television director.

It tells of mad waltzes and champagne evenings in Munich; how we had to snuggle in an icy ghasthaus bedroom after we nearly froze while Mimi was teaching me how to ski.

It describes late-night banquets when sailing the Greek Islands under star filled skies; improvising happily in a narrow bed in Paris, romantic candle-light dinners in Central Park and moonlight skinny-dipping in the Atlantic on Fire Island.

My book also chronicles some of the physical hurdles that you have to clear in order to make it to old age.

The love that kept us together for 56 years carried us through the last years of Mimi's life when I became her 24/7 caretaker.

It will make you laugh as well as cry.
