Still Alice, Paperback Book

Description

A moving story of a woman with early onset Alzheimer's disease, now a major Academy Award-winning film starring Julianne Moore and Kristen Stewart.

Alice Howland is proud of the life she worked so hard to build.

At fifty, she's a cognitive psychology professor at Harvard and a renowned expert in linguistics, with a successful husband and three grown children.

When she begins to grow forgetful and disoriented, she dismisses it for as long as she can until a tragic diagnosis changes her life - and her relationship with her family and the world around her - for ever.

Unable to care for herself, Alice struggles to find meaning and purpose as her concept of self gradually slips away.

But Alice is a remarkable woman, and her family learn more about her and each other in their quest to hold on to the Alice they know.

Her memory hanging by a frayed thread, she is living in the moment, living for each day.

But she is still Alice.
