A Pilgrimage Through Alzheimer's

Friday, September 06, 2013

Poet Jeanne Murray Walker talks about her mother's long passage into dementia. In The Geography of Memory explores parental love, grief, and the unexpected consolation of memory. Her mother's memory, which more and more dwells in the distant past, illuminates Walker's own childhood, and helps her rediscover and understand her own past.
