When Meg Federico´s eighty year-old mother and newly minted step-father were finally forced to accept full-time home care, she imagined them settling into a Norman-Rockwellian life of docile dependency. With a family of her own and a full time career - a thousand miles away from her parents - Federico hoped her mother and step-father would be able to take care of themselves for the most part, and call on their children when they really needed them. After all, why else would an eighty-year old woman remarry? But after a fall while vacationing in Florida, Federico´s mother, Addie, sits bolt upright on her gurney and yells, ´´I demand an autopsy!´´ before passing out again. It´s the first in a string of moments both heartbreaking and hilarious that make Welcome to the Departure Lounge such a riveting read. As she watches from the sidelines with horror, Federico´s parents turn into terrible teens - with licenses to drink and drive. Fighting off onslaughts of dementia and Alzheimer´s disease, Addie and Walter, forbidden to drink by doctors, conspire to order cases of scotch by phone; Addie´s attendant accuses the evening staff of midnight Voodoo; Walter´s inhibitions decline as dementia increases and mail-order sex aides arrive at the front door. The list of absurdities goes on and on as Federico tries to take some control over her parents´ lives - and her own. With her fresh and easy voice, Federico writes a story for the huge generation now dealing with the care of their parents. You´ll laugh and cry as you take the raucous ride with Meg Federico in this powerful debut. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tamara Marston.
