About the Book
Genova delivers a poignant audio book about a busy, vibrant woman in her 30s who has a car accident, leaving her to deal with a crippling disorder called left neglect.
From the Publisher
The New York Times bestselling author of Still Alice delivers a compelling and poignant story about a vibrant woman in the prime of her life struck with the crippling disorder of “left neglect.”
Neuroscientist and multiple award–winning author, Lisa Genova has been honored repeatedly for her writing excellence. Her first novel, Still Alice, a haunting and moving portrait of Alzheimer’s patient, was a commercial and critical success, debuting at #5 on the New York Times list and staying there for more than thirty weeks. Now she brings attention to a lesser-known condition, building upon the same kind of humanity that made Still Alice so special.
Thirty-something Sarah Nickerson is like so many women today—driven to succeed at home and at work, multi-tasking all day long, spread extremely thin. The morning that changes her life forever is at first just a typical morning. She’s in her car on her way to work, about to make a business call. But she takes her eyes off the road for one second too long, and she finds herself involved in a terrible accident. Sarah suffers a traumatic brain injury. Her memory and intellect are still intact, but she loses the ability to perceive information coming from the left—as if the left side of everything no longer exists—a condition known as left neglect. In just the blink of an eye, her life has changed. But as she works to recover, she reorders her priorities, and heals a rift with her mother, as well.
