Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"There cannot be an intelligent adult to whom this remarkable (and beautifully written) account will not be of value". Denise Levertov

"Looking After is about looking inward, a natural history of memory, candid and tender and brave". Terry Tempest Williams

John Daniel explores the delicate terrain of memory and loss as Alzheimer's disease hastens his mother's decline. Struggling with guilt and anger, he pieces together fragmented recollections of both her life and his own. A story of daily burdens, unexpected blessings, and the "deep smile of the spirit".
