“From the author of "Still Alice", is a new novel about a man, Richard, being diagnosed with ALS. The story is narrated by Dennis Boutsikaris & Dagmara Dominczyk. Dennis speaks during the chapters from Richard's point of view while Dagmara speaks for Karina. Richard is a world renowned classical pianist; dating beautiful women, recently divorced from his wife, living in a fancy 4 story walk-up apartment in Boston. He is reveling in his independence. His wife Karina, a pianist in her own right, was a stay at home mom, raising their daughter Grace instead of pursuing her dream of becoming a jazz pianist. She resents Richard for it. Their daughter Grace has moved out of the house and is in college as Karina is trying to adjust to a life alone. Richard starts canceling tours, that's when Karina hears from friends that he is diagnosed with ALS. She visits him and doesn't believe it. Of course their old demons come up and they part on bad terms. A few months later Karina finds Richard in a pile of shit (literally) and realizes the diagnosis is real. The story is heart breakingly sad, funny, and real. ALS robs you of your freedom and independence. There is no cure. The cause is unknown. I learned so much about this disease outside of the ice bucket challenge. This story is a reminder that life is to short. The time to reflect on your life and stop procrastinating is now. As Richard learned life isn't stagnant and time is precious. Don't waste it.”Kelly, M. Judson Booksellers & Storytellers
