my take: A devastating, beautiful novel told from the perspective of an Alzheimer’s victim. As the disease progresses, the narrative changes to reflect her limited cognitive experience and I found myself walking in her ever shrinking shoes, so to speak. Also, it was unnerving as i found my own memory lapses more noticeable. This book will haunt you.
