Professor Lem’s book "Gray Matters: Finding meaning in the stories of later life" examines a diverse array of cultural works including films, literature, and art that represent later life, often made by people who are seniors themselves. These works, focusing on important topics such as housing, memory loss, and intimacy, are analyzed in dialogue with recent research to explore how ‘stories’ illuminate the dynamics of growing old by blending fact with imagination.
