Praise

“A miracle of caring…Lauren Kessler manages to humanize the victims and shine a clear, compassionate light on those who struggle to care for them. Anyone affected by the disease has to read this book.” –Barbara Ehrenreich

“Heartening and thought-provoking…Kesssler’s feelings as a daughter and her experiences as a caregiver add up to a touching read, and the book offers some unusual ways to think about living and dying with the disease.” —The Seattle Times

“…a magnificient book. I read it mornings and evenings on the train, Kleenex in hand, weeping. But laughing too. I have to thank you for really opening my eyes to the humanity of a group of people I would for”—Deborah Way, O (Oprah) magazine

Profound… Kessler learns that rather than stripping humanity away, dementia lays it bare”–Chicago Tribune

“This is the true brilliance of Finding Life in the Land of Alzheimers. It upends our assumptions and forces us to ask: What do I have to hold on to? Who would I be if my memories were stripped away? What is my essence?” –Los Angeles Times

“…turns our assumptions on their heads.”--Baltimore Sun

“…an excellent book…an emotional and ruminative anchor…She leaves her readers with hope.”–San Francisco Chronicle

“Revealing…tender…a riveting view into the world of people living with Alzheimer’s.” —Portland Oregonian

-AARP magazine
