This literary mystery is narrated by Jennifer White, a hand surgeon suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Her thorny best friend, Amanda, has been killed, and the circumstances implicate Jennifer, who cannot remember that Amanda is dead, much less what her own role might have been in the death.
This book has been very well reviewed, but I didn't like it as much as I expected to, and I can't say exactly why. The prose is beautiful and the time-shifting structure and unreliable narration make for an interesting puzzle. I often liked Jennifer's voice very much, but overall, I didn't believe in her voice: it felt more like a narrative device than an accurate portrayal of Alzheimer's.
