Jacket cover from Lisa Genova's September is World Alzheimer's month, a time to remember and honor the 35 million people around the world whose lives have been changed by this all too common disease. Author Lisa Genova presents a heartbreakingly realistic portrayal of dealing with Alzheimer's in her debut novel, Still Alice. Professor Alice Howland has spent her career studying the brain--how can she accept that her own may be failing her?
