What Dementia Teaches Us About Love


What is it to be oneself, and what is it to lose one’s self. Who are we when we are not ourselves, and where do we go? This is a book about dementia – not a personal account, but an exploration, structured around this radically-slowed death. Full of people’s stories, both sad and optimistic, it is a journey into the dusk and then the darkness – and then out on to the other side, where, once someone is dead, a life can be seen whole again.
