From the Publisher
Still Alice is a compelling debut novel about a
fifty-year-old woman's sudden descent into early onset Alzheimer's
disease, written by first-time author Lisa Genova, who holds a PhD
in neuroscience from Harvard University.
Alice Howland, happily married with three grown children and a
house on the Cape, is a celebrated Harvard professor at the height
of her career when she notices a forgetfulness creeping into her
life. As confusion starts to cloud her thinking and her memory
begins to fail her, she receives a devastating diagnosis: early
onset Alzheimer's disease. Fiercely independent, Alice struggles to
maintain her lifestyle and live in the moment, even as her sense of
self is being stripped away. In turns heartbreaking, inspiring, and
terrifying, Still Alice captures in remarkable detail what
it's like to literally lose your mind...
Reminiscent of A Beautiful Mind, Ordinary People,
and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the
Night-time, Still Alice packs a powerful emotional
punch and marks the arrival of a strong new voice in fiction.
