The Wilderness, 28 April 2009
Your journey in life is very personal to you. In your head you carry around experiences and knowledge that has been built up throughout your lifetime. Alzheimer's disease slowly strangles, tangles and erases your brain processes.
How does that feel? How does that affect you? What is it that makes you you? This is the journey that The Wilderness takes you on.
This should be a dark and depressing subject but Harvey lifts the reader with her poetic and brilliantly crafted prose into a life-affirming crescendo that does not disappoint.
