Not Fade Away: A Memoir of Senses Lost and Found by Rebecca Alexander

A remarkable memoir about a woman in her mid 30’s suffering from Usher II, a genetic disease that slowly takes away vision and hearing.  Despite her many obstacles, Alexander is a therapist with two graduate degrees from Columbia as well as being a personal trainer.  This is an insightful depiction about disease and loss without being dramatic, idealistic or schmaltzy.
