The man who lost his memory- the moving true story of an English musician crippled by total amnesia, written by his wife.
Deborah Wearing campaigned for specialist services for brain-injured people and helped found a national charity, the Amnesia Association (merged in 1991 with Headway). She now works as a communications officer in the NHS.
This is a harrowing, haunting and heartening book - a loss-story
which is also a love story. It takes us deep inside the question of
what it means to be human. -- Andrew Motion
Sometimes terrifying, sometimes very funny, and always deeply moving, Deborah Wearing's beautifully written testament to a love that survives all the ravages of her husband's amnesia is a book to seize the heart. -- Lindsay Clarke, author of the Whitbread winning The Chymical Wedding
A remarkable book: absorbing, moving and humbling. -- Fay Weldon
Loving, terrifying and often extremely funny, an astonishing voyage into the very heart of what makes us human. -- Deborah Moggach
I had the privilege of filming a documentary about Deborah and Clive and like the rest of the crew I was immediately struck with the extraordinary patience and affection with which Deborah dealt with this appalling ordeal. In Forever Today she takes us further than ever into this remarkable experience. -- Jonathan Miller
