Lisa Genova – Still Alice

Lisa Genova did the impossible: self-published her book and saw it become a best-seller. Her book, Still Alice, is the story of a middle-aged Harvard professor with early onset Alzheimer’s. Genova’s novel deals with how one maintains their identity through the terrible disease, and sheds light on the perspective of a woman dealing with an early Alzheimer’s diagnosis.
