Still Alice by Lisa Genova

In Still Alice, Dr. Alice Howland--busy Harvard psychology professor, wife, and mother--begins forgetting everyday names and places. Attributing the forgetfulness to aging and a hectic schedule, Alice is shocked to learn that, at age 50, she has early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. With compassion and a vast knowledge of this devastating disease, author and neuroscientist Dr. Lisa Genova writes a fictional account of one woman’s struggle with Alzheimer’s and her realization that she is about to lose everything that is dear to her.
