These are just a few of the things wrong with the world, according to some of New Zealand’s best known “old” women. In honest, humorous and plain speaking terms they rant about things, big and little, that make them really grumpy about the current state of affairs and about the world in general.
You may identify with some of these pet peeves yourself, be moved or amused by others and I’d say that whether you are 25 or 85 (or male), you will thoroughly enjoy the voices of these wonderful, interesting women of Aotearoa New Zealand!
P.S. If you haven’t already, read the equally enjoyable Grumpy old men books 1 and 2, in which 95 Kiwi blokes sound off on a range of subjects.
