“This wonderful debut novel tells the story of 50-year-old Harvard professor Alice Howland as she grapples with early-onset Alzheimer's disease. Lisa Genova's writing style, and her compelling story, will leave you thinking of, and wanting to talk about, Alice after finishing this powerful, beautiful work.”

Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Fall '09/Winter '10 Reading Group List
“Still Alice tells the story of a 50-year-old Harvard psychology and linguistics professor in the year following diagnosis of early onset Alzheimer's disease. Her struggles with the effect on her work life, and her family's attempts to cope, are compelling and entirely believable. Genova's doctorate in neuroscience lets information flow naturally as part of a tender story, perfect for book groups.”
-- Carla Jimenez, Inkwood Books, Tampa, FL
