New memoir finds gift in Alzheimer’s


Jeanne Murray Walker’s memoir The Geography of Memory: A Pilgrimage Through Alzheimer’s is out today. It’s a funny, clear-eyed, and at times stunning journey into her mother’s loss of memory and her own recovery of childhood memories.

Eugene Peterson calls it “a sturdy witness to unexpected meanings and beauties and even humor that surface in lives of faith and suffering,” and Paula Huston calls it “one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever read.”
