Alice Howland, happily married with three grown children, is a celebrated Harvard professor at the height of her career when she notices a forgetfulness creeping into her life. As confusion starts to cloud her thinking and her memory begins to fail her, she receives a devastating diagnosis: early onset Alzheimer's disease.
Fiercely independent, Alice struggles to maintain her lifestyle and live in the moment, even as her sense of self is being stripped away. STILL ALICE has an authentic voice and a pitch-perfect tone even as Alice loses control of her own words. This compelling debut novel has been released simultaneously in hardcover and trade paperback.
