Remind Me Who I am, Again by Linda Grant
  

Selected by Sarah Broadhurst

'A skilful, moving, even humorous book. It is more than an elegy for a lost mother or the charting of one human being's decline ... It is an investigation of memory, which concludes that Memory, I have come to understand, is everything, it's life itself ' Scotland on Sunday

Synopsis

Remind Me Who I am, Again by Linda Grant

At the beginning of the nineties Linda Grant's mother, Rose, was diagnosed with Dementia. In Remind Me Who I Am, Again Linda Grant tells the story of Rose's illness, and tries to reconstruct the history of their Jewish immigrant family, stalking them from Russia and Poland to New York and London. Writing with humour and great tenderness, Grant explores profound questions about memory, autonomy and identity, and asks if we can ever really know our parents.
