"The Story of Forgetting" by Stefan Merrill Block a Must Read!

I absolutely loved this novel and highly recommend it. It’s about three generations of sufferers of early-onset Alzheimer’s (which can come on as early as 30, which I didn’t know). It’s partly a portrayal of the disease itself, partly a meditation on memory and its ramifications, but mostly it’s just a beautifully-written story about the need for human connection. I won’t be forgetting Abel Haggard for a long time.

Here is the author’s website. And here‘s a short autobiographical piece, equally compelling, that he wrote the Guardian.
