Description



About the Book



"Still Alice" is a compelling debut novel about a 50-year-old woman's sudden descent into early onset Alzheimer's disease, written by a first-time author who holds a Ph.D. in neuroscience. Reminiscent of "A Beautiful Mind" and "Ordinary People," this work packs an emotional punch.



Book Synopsis



In Lisa Genova's extraordinary New York Times bestselling novel, an accomplished woman slowly loses her thoughts and memories to Alzheimer's disease--only to discover that each day brings a new way of living and loving. Now a major motion picture starring Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, Kate Bosworth, and Kristen Stewart!

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.



Review Quotes



"Because the full, internal experience of Alzheimer's is an account that fiction alone can deliver, it's no surprise that the go-to book for caretakers and early-stage sufferers is a novel. "Still Alice," written by the neuroscientist Lisa Genova, offers a crisp, straightforward, and wrenching depiction of the fifty-year-old Harvard professor Alice Howland's descent into the swift, early-onset form of the disease."-- "The New Yorker, A Place Beyond Words: The Literature of Alzheimer"

This book is as important as it is impressive, and will grace the lives of those affected by this dread disease for generations to come. -- Phil Bolsta, author of Sixty Seconds
