Lisa Genova’s New Book Portrays Realities of ALS
July 4, 2018 - als
On The Point, Mindy Todd hosts this talk with author Lisa Genova about her latest book Every Note Played. It’s the story of Richard, an achieved pianist who now has ALS, and his disloyal mother Karina who becomes his demure caretaker. As Richard’s muscles, voice, and exhale fade, both he and Karina try to determine their pasts before it’s too late. This book is inspired by neuroscience and a tellurian spirit, as are a author’s prior New York Times bestselling novels Still Alice and Love, Anthony.
