What's it like to lose your mind, to see slices of your very identity slipping away piece by piece? Veteran journalist Greg O'Brien likens it to a trip out to Pluto "where no one can see you or hear what is said." Pluto, he writes, is metaphor for loss of self-penetrating isolation that heightens the urge to drift even further. Diagnosed at 59 with early-onset Alzheimer's, O'Brien has written an illuminating, naked and honest account of living with Alzheimer's, not dying with it. Drawing on his cognitive reserve, he is reporting back to Earth his experiences as he journeys further into inner space in his memoir, ON PLUTO: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer's.
