A New York Times Bestseller

Have you ever felt panic when you walk into a room only to forget why you went there in the first place? If you’re over forty, you’re probably not laughing. You might even be worried that these lapses in memory could be an early sign of Alzheimer’s or dementia. Just because your memory sometimes fails doesn’t mean it’s broken or succumbing to disease. Forgetting is part of being human. In Remember, neuroscientist and acclaimed novelist Lisa Genova delves into how memories are made and how we retrieve them. By setting educated expectations for your memory, you create a better relationship with it. And that can be life-changing.


Customer Reviews

“Charming historical fiction.”

— Booklist

“Outstanding . . . In her ability to blend crime and farce, Truss is in a class of her own.”

— Publishers Weekly (starred)

“Thomas (MY BEAUTIFUL ENEMY) maintains the shadowy Victorian setting as she advances her marvelous take on the Holmes canon. . . . A must for mystery/Sherlock fans and readers who love excellent puzzles.”
