Still Alice revolves around a 50-year old Harvard Professor’s descent into early on-set Alzheimers. A woman passionate about Linguistics – the study of language – finds that she is soon at a loss for words, due to the steady decline of her cognitive awareness, and her sense of ‘self.’ Alice’s world becomes a tattered puzzle of scattered thought and degenerative memory loss. The reader starts to question their own reality – as they, too descend into a disorienting world of loss, love, identity and ultimately, redemption.
