In the spring of 1986, Sue Miller found herself more and more deeply involved in caring for her father as he slipped into the grasp of Alzheimer's disease. "The Story of My Father" is a profound, deeply moving account of her father's final days and her own response to it. With care, restraint and consummate skill, Miller writes of her struggles to be fully with her father in his illness while confronting her own terror of abandonment, and eventually the long, hard work of grieving for him. And through this candid, painful record, she offers a rigorous, compassionate inventory of two lives, a powerful meditation on the variable nature of memory and the difficulty of weaving a truthful narrative from the threads of a dissolving life. This is a truly remarkable book from one of America's best loved authors.

Reviews

'Beautifully written and moving ... Every relative of an Alzheimer's patient feels this guilt, here painfully anatomised ... The Story of My Father is the best book of its genre I have ever read' Sunday Telegraph 'Much more than a memoir, her book is an exploration of the nature of self and an extraordinary testament to an extraordinary love' Independent 'A cool, lucid, often painfully frank account ... remarkable for its honesty and courage, and for the muted gallantry with which its subject met the loss of everything that made him human' Daily Telegraph 'You do not need an interest in Alzheimer's to be moved by this. You just need to have a parent you love' The Times Play Magazine
