In this issue of Saga Magazine : There’s a lot to talk about in the May issue of Saga Magazine. Our cover star, Jeremy Vines, says much of the state-of-the-nation chit-chat on his Radio 2 phone-in show revolves around intergenerational conflict. He reflects on his own rebellious youth, his sadness over his father’s struggle with Parkinson’s and the challenges of being a parent himself. Then we have an interesting intergenerational discussion – about whether life is better for women now than 50 years ago – between a founder member of Virago books and her student niece. Still on the subject of families, as our previous selection of funny things your grandchildren said proved so popular, we’ve compiled another batch of their giggle-worthy gems.
