In his customary pose as the grumpiest of grumpy old men, Raymond Briggs contemplates old age and death - and doesn't like them much. Illustrated with Briggs's inimitable pencil drawings, 'Time for Lights Out' is a collection of short pieces, some funny, some melancholy, some remembering his wife who died young, others about the joy of grandchildren, of walking the dog. He looks back at his schooldays and his time as an evacuee during the war, and remembers his parents and the house in which he grew up.
