From the Publisher
From Lisa Genova-whose novel Still Alice is soon to be a
major motion picture starring Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, Kate
Bosworth, and Kristen Stewart-comes this New York Times
bestselling novel of resilience in the face of a devastating
diagnosis. A vibrant mother in her thirties learns what matters
most in life when a car crash leaves her with a traumatic brain
disorder called "left neglect."
Sarah Nickerson, like any other working mom, is busy trying to have
it all. One morning while racing to work and distracted by her cell
phone, she looks away from the road for one second too long. In
that blink of an eye, all the rapidly moving parts of her
over-scheduled life come to a screeching halt. After a brain injury
steals her awareness of everything on her left side, Sarah must
retrain her mind to perceive the world as a whole. In so doing, she
also learns how to pay attention to the people and parts of her
life that matter most.
In this powerful and poignant New York Times bestseller,
Lisa Genova explores what can happen when we are forced to change
our perception of everything around us. Left Neglected is
an unforgettable story about finding abundance in the most
difficult of circumstances, learning to pay attention to the
details, and nourishing what truly matters.
