From New York Times bestselling author and neuroscientist Lisa Genova comes the definitiveâ€”and illuminatingâ€”novel about Alzheimerâ€™s disease. Now a major motion picture starring Oscar winner Julianne Moore! Look for Lisa Genova's latest novel Inside the Oâ€™Briens.
Alice Howland is proud of the life she worked so hard to build. At fifty years old, sheâ€™s a cognitive psychology professor at Harvard and a world-renowned expert in linguistics with a successful husband and three grown children. When she becomes increasingly disoriented and forgetful, a tragic diagnosis changes her lifeâ€”and her relationship with her family and the worldâ€”forever. As she struggles to cope with Alzheimerâ€™s, she learns that her worth is comprised of far more than her ability to remember.
At once beautiful and terrifying, Still Alice is a moving and vivid depiction of life with early-onset Alzheimerâ€™s disease that is as compelling as A Beautiful Mind and as unforgettable as Ordinary People.
