Still Alice by Lisa Genova
Alice Howland is proud of the life she has worked so
hard to build. A Harvard professor at the height of her career, she has
a successful husband and three grown children. When Alice begins to grow
forgetful at first she just dismisses it, but when she gets lost in her
own neighborhood she realizes that something is terribly wrong. Alice
finds herself in the rapid downward spiral of early onset Alzheimer’s
disease. She is only 50 years old.
Still Alice is Lisa Genova’s first book.
She holds a Ph. D in neuroscience from Harvard University and travels
worldwide, speaking about Alzheimer’s Disease, traumatic brain injury,
and autism. Still Alice has spent over 40 weeks on the New
York Times bestseller list and has been translated into 25 languages.
