“In a tightly composed piece of writing, novelist Lisa Genova carries the reader through the grim melody and turbulent sequencing of ALS while expertly relaying the gradual impact of the disease on the lives of patients and caregivers. With medical details balanced against the raw manifestation of the human experience, Every Note Played explores the cruel effects of loss and the profound effects of compassion and forgiveness. Richard and Karina are voluntarily alone, yet uncomfortably united by a sense of need and duty. Genova holds nothing back, producing a story that resonates with meaning and builds to a keen point of understanding.”

Description

An accomplished concert pianist, Richard now has ALS. His right arm is paralyzed. The loss feels like a death, a divorce -- his divorce. He knows his left arm will go next. Three years ago, Karina removed their wedding picture from the living room wall and hung a mirror there instead. But she still hasn't moved on. From neuroscientist and bestselling author of Still Alice Lisa Genova comes a powerful and heartbreaking exploration of regret, forgiveness, freedom, and what it means to be alive.
