Elizabeth Is Missing – Emma Healey

Elizabeth Is Missing - Emma HealeyExcellent first book about the ravages of dementia, about Maud  (mid 80s) with short-term memory loss (What am I doing? Where am I going?) with retention of  long-term memory (disappearance of an elder sister after WWII). The exasperation of her daughter and other care-givers is vivid.
