The topic of retirement becomes increasingly compelling as the U.S. population ages. It's easy to find books about how to plan financially for those years after careers end, but Breaking the Watch focuses on the many ways of creating a life, not just making a living, as a retired person. This book follows women and men from a rural American community as they approach and experience the first years of retirement. Joel Savishinsky focuses on the efforts people make to find meaning in a stage of life American culture often views in a confused or disdainful way. In conversations and stories, 13 men and 13 women demonstrate a deep commitment to defining their own retirement. They bring to their mature years a diversity of backgrounds, interests, and responsibilities. They include former teachers, librarians, doctors, farmers, lawyers, bankers, mail carriers, and secretaries. Some are married, others divorced or single; many have children and grandchildren, but some have neither. Their finances run the gamut from the modest to the munificent, while their health ranges from robust to disabled. From an examination of the "rites of passage" that marked their exit from full-time work, Breaking the Watch moves on to consider how to plan appropriately for retirement; renegotiate ties to friends, family, and community; and create a sense of passion—be it for t'ai chi, travel, painting, or politics—that will drive a new sense of purpose. These intimate glimpses into real lives allow a rare understanding of the retirement process.

Translated from 《大眼鸡 越洋人》, a book shortlisted for 2018 Singapore Literature Prize (creative non-fiction, Chinese) by the Singapore Book Council. This book is dedicated to the Cantonese pioneers who voyaged to Nanyang and contributed to the contemporary Singapore. The term guanghuizhao (广惠肇, referring to Guangzhou 广州, Huizhou 惠州 and Zhaoqing 肇庆) for Cantonese is not only a geographical concept, but also a century-old brand in Singapore. Over generations, Kwong Wai Siew Peck San Theng and Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital remain immovable in Singapore, and the Yangzheng Foundation continues to serve the people, breaking a stereotypical view of the community, in which ‘the first generation establishes, the second generation preserves, the third generation squanders, and the fourth generation loses everything’. Nowadays, interracial marriages are common in Singapore and marriages between different dialect groups are beyond count. The younger generations have a vague awareness of their origins and many of them could barely communicate in their dialects. One could only wonder what the future will bring for these Chinese associations that were set up by the forefathers of various dialect groups.
