Praise
"STILL ALICE, although a novel, reads like a gripping memoir of a woman in her prime watching the life she once knew fade away."
From the Publisher
Editors Note "Feeling at the top of her game when she is suddenly diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease, Harvard psychologist Alice Howland struggles to find meaning and purpose in her everyday life as her concept of self gradually slips away. A first novel. Simultaneous."
Annotation Drawing from her long career as a Harvard-based neuroscientist, Lisa Genova, in her debut novel, depicts the inevitable hardships of early onset Alzheimer's disease. Alice, a renowned Harvard professor at the height of her career, begins to experience little slips of memory, which eventually are identified as the beginnings of her terrible, gradual descent into the darkness of Alzheimer's. Genova's expertise on the subject is on display throughout, as she alternates scientific discussion of the disease with the heart-wrenching details of watching a beloved family member endure mental disintegration.
