  愛麗絲.赫蘭是一位才智過人、事業有成的女性,五十歲的她是哈佛大學認知心理學教授、全球知名的語言學家,丈夫也是哈佛的癌症分子生物學家,三個孩子都已長大各有發展。
  
  有一天,愛麗絲發現自己的方向感變差,變得健忘。就 醫後,悲劇般的診斷徹底改變了她的生命,也改變了她與家人和世界的關係。一方面,她罹患了侵噬心靈的阿茲海默症,不斷偷走她視為「自己」的部分,記憶趕不 上遺忘,令她逐漸失去與外在世界的連結;另一方面,她卻發現世界在她眼前的模樣開始改變,不斷改變,每一天都有新的方式去生活、去愛,記憶並不是她生命的 一切……

  ★本書中譯版《我想念我自己》由遠流出版。 

  Alice finds herself in the rapidly downward spiral of Alzheimer's Disease she is just fifty years old. A university professor, wife, and mother of three, she still has so much more to do - books to write, places to see, grandchildren to meet. But when she can't remember how to make her famous Christmas pudding, when she gets lost in her own back yard, when she fails to recognise her actress daughter after a superb performance, she comes up with a desperate plan. But can she see it through? Should she see it through? Losing her yesterdays, living for each day, her short-term memory is hanging on by a couple of frayed threads. But she is still Alice.
