About this book
Andrea Gillies' brilliantly cogent investigations into the way Alzheimer's works are interwoven with her mother-in-law's unravelling grasp on reality.
A new edition of Gillies's journal, which charts her experience taking care of her mother-in-law as she was in the middle stages of Alzheimer's disease. The extended family went to live in a big Victorian house in the far north of Scotland. It won the inaugural Wellcome Prize last year. 'Thoughtful, informative and true...' Sir Richard Eyre
