Zbinden's Progress by Christoph Simon

Zbinden's Progress by Christoph Simon

Set in an old folk's home in Switzerland, Lukas Zbinden walks with the aid of a new caregiver, Kazim.  As they slowly walk down the stairway, Zbinden tells Kazim of his like as a teacher, as a husband to his now deceased wife, and as a father to his son, Markus. It is at times touching and beautiful and at others clever and witty. It is a quiet book of one man's walk on life's journey.

It is so hard to find well-written books with people of age in a positive role (I've been noticing this for at least a decade already, so maybe 60 or over....) sounds like this might be one of them.
