Winner of the the Wellcome Trust Book Prize 2011.

Alice LaPlante imagines herself into the mind of an Alzheimer’s sufferer. Any number of non-fiction books can give you symptoms and describe the illness but it takes a gifted and intuitive author to get inside, to show us what it must be like for the sufferer. Part of the value of the Mind Prize is that it accepts both fiction and non-fiction and this year’s worthy winner, Turn of Mind is both a strongly plotted murder mystery and a revelatory exploration of a disease such as Alzheimer’s.

Vivienne Parry, Chair of the judging panel said:
‘Technically daring, Turn of Mind tells a gripping story in the voice of someone actually afflicted with Alzheimer’s and emphatically confirms the ability of literature to tell us more about the heart and soul of an illness than any text book. Hats off to Alice LaPlante for carrying off this prize for her very first novel, particularly against such stiff competition.’
