The New York Times bestselling author of Still Alice delivers a compelling and poignant story about a vibrant woman in the prime of her life struck with the crippling disorder of "left neglect."

Neuroscientist and multiple award-winning author, Lisa Genova has been honored repeatedly for her writing excellence. Her first novel, Still Alice , a haunting and moving portrait of Alzheimer's patient, was a commercial and critical success, debuting at #5 on the New York Times list and staying there for more than thirty weeks. Now she brings attention to a lesser-known condition, building upon the same kind of humanity that made Still Alice so special.

Thirty-something Sarah Nickerson is like so many women today--driven to succeed at home and at work, multi-tasking all day long, spread extremely thin. The morning that changes her life forever is at first just a typical morning. She's in her car on her way to work, about to make a business call. But she takes her eyes off the road for one second too long, and she finds herself involved in a terrible accident. Sarah suffers a traumatic brain injury. Her memory and intellect are still intact, but she loses the ability to perceive information coming from the left--as if the left side of everything no longer exists--a condition known as left neglect. In just the blink of an eye, her life has changed. But as she works to recover, she reorders her priorities, and heals a rift with her mother, as well.
