About the book: 

Hendrik Groen is 83¼ years old and he has decided that it is time to make something of his life. He may be rich in years, but he refuses to give in to all the trappings of old age just yet. Hendrik's hilarious and touching diary documents his life as an OAP (Old Age Pensioner) living in a care home. When he recruits some similarly young-at-heart friends to join his 'Old But Not Dead Club', Hendrik proves that love can blossom, rules can be broken and fun is within reach, even at their age. So begins a charming, poignant and moving novel that reminds us not to underestimate the oldest amongst us.
