Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Diana Friel McGowin

Biography & Memoir • 3.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1993

Diana Friel McGowin's life was ravaged at age 45 by the devastating diagnosis of early onset of Alzheimer's disease. Tormented by the progression of her debility, she persevered in documenting her thoughts and emotions on her word processor. For those familiar with the book, this audio publication adds an update of McGowin's life after her manuscript's publication. With fierce determination she reads her own book, describing herself as " an Alzheimer's who talks--who talks back." Professional narration would diminish this book's impact. The stark truthfulness of her reading compels the listener's attention. Hearing McGowin's voice, one feels the despair, confusion and hope of an Alzheimer's patient. K.D.P.
