2008 book 50

Stefan Merrill Block's The Story of Forgetting
Convalescing on the couch gave me time tofinally finish reading this novel, which centers on a teen whose mother is diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimers. He attempts to track down info on her past, while her father narrates other parts of the books. Interludes in a fictional mystical town that the family created didn't really do much for me, and I thought the ending was abrupt, but the information on early-onset Alzheimer's was pretty interesting. B-.
