When Sue Miller's father fell victim to Alzheimer's disease, her world plunged into crisis. Both as a daughter and as a writer, she was forced to bend to the disease's unrelenting course, and watch her father's memory slip away. As a daughter, she was tormented by the slow loss of her father's faculties, and frustrated by her attempts to care for him. As a writer, she was inspired by the problem of how to make a true account of someone's life coalesce out of the dying and tangled threads of memory. The result is a clear, compassionate portrait of two lives, a powerful and insightful journal of grieving, love, and transcendence
