Lisa Genova graduated valedictorian from Bates College with a degree in Biopsychology and holds a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Harvard University. She is a member of the Dementia Advocacy, Support Network International and DementiaUSA and is an online columnist for the National Alzheimer''s association. She lives with her husband and two children in Cape Cod. "Still Alice" is her first novel.
From the Publisher:
"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.

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." - Craig Wilson 01/07/2009
