Description

In The Aging Cheerleader's Alphabet, Lynes has crafted a moving portrait of a woman whose humour and chutzpah challenge a world that sees her as a relic of another age. Part nostalgia, part cultural critique with respect to women's experience of aging, Lynes' Cheerleader does handsprings, walkovers, and roundoffs over the very language that seeks to define her.
