About the Book
A writing couple searches for answers when Alzheimer's causes one of them to lose the place where stories come from -- memory.

At the age of fifty-three, Tony walks away from a life of journalism and into an unknown future. June is forty-eight, a writer and teacher, and over the following decade watches as her husband changes -- in interests, goals, and behaviour -- until Tony has a fall, ending the life they had known.

A diagnosis is seven years away, yet the signs of Alzheimer's are all around. A suitcase Tony packs for a trip is jammed with four umbrellas, a visual symbol of cognitive looping. But how far back do these signs go? The couple starts probing the past and finding answers. This is not an old person's disease.
About the Author: June Hutton has written two novels and facilitates writing workshops at a treatment centre for addiction. Tony Wanless worked for a variety of newspapers across Canada, including the Financial Post and the Province, and is taking part in a study on Alzheimer's at UBC Hospital. They live in Vancouver.
