紐約時報暢銷書Still Alice《我想念我自己》作者莉莎‧潔諾娃 最新著作,直逼人性深處的心碎作品

43歲的Joe O’Brien是一位忠誠的丈夫、以四個可愛小孩為榮的父親,及受人尊敬的警官。某日Joe突然發生思緒混亂,脾氣暴躁及身體不由自主的律動。原本歸咎於工作壓力,但隨著病徵越來越嚴重,在神經科醫生診斷下得知自己罹患了改變人生及折磨家人的惡耗─亨丁頓舞蹈症。

亨丁頓舞蹈症是一種致命的神經退化性疾病,不但無藥可醫,還伴隨著50%的遺傳機率。21歲的女兒Katie,正值人生最快樂階段的無憂少女,目睹父親越趨嚴重的病徵,開始為自己未知的人生感到窒息般的壓力。Joe提出離職後,對生活開始感到困惑,而Joe的四位兒女也必須面對未知的風險,學習在命運的抉擇下找到勇氣。

莉莎‧潔諾娃(Lisa Genova)為紐約時報評選為最佳暢銷書作家,著有《這就是我來到這世界的理由》(Love Anthony)、《Left Neglected》及《我想念我自己》(Still Alice)。《我想念我自己》是莉莎‧潔諾娃的第一部小說,改編為同名電影,由好萊塢女星茱莉安摩爾(Julianne Moore)主演,並獲得2015年奧斯卡最佳女主角獎。潔諾娃也是哈佛大學神經科學博士,研究主題包含:憂鬱症之分子病因、帕金森氏症、藥癮、中風引發之記憶喪失。


The breathtaking new novel from the author of STILL ALICE, now adapted into an Oscar-winning film starring Julianne Moore. 

What would you do if the body and brain you rely on suddenly let you down - and would it change the person you are inside? Joe O'Brien is a Boston cop; his physical stamina and methodical mind have seen him through decades policing the city streets, while raising a family with his wife Rosie. When he starts committing uncharacteristic errors - mislaying his police weapon, trouble writing up reports, slurred speech - he attributes them to stress, though some colleagues aren't so sure. Finally, he agrees to see a doctor and is handed a terrifying, unexpected diagnosis: Huntington's disease. 

Not only is Joe's life set to change forever, but each of his four grown-up children has a fifty per cent chance of inheriting the disease. Observing her potential future play out in her father's escalating symptoms, his pretty yoga teacher daughter Katie wrestles with how to make the most of the here and now, and how to care for her dad who is, inside, always an O'Brien. Inside the O'Briens is a powerfully true and tender elegy to the resilience of the human spirit.
