Still Alice, by Lisa Genova

Read and reviewed in September, 2012, released later

I read this very quickly; I couldn't put it down!
A very moving and disturbing fictional account of a brilliant woman, a Harvard professor in psychology, who suddenly begins having serious memory lapses. She is diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease, and her rapid decline in spite of medication is frightening to herself and to her family, but sadly, later only her husband is distressed.
