Do You Remember Me?
A Father, A Daughter, and A Search for the SelfBook - 2004
In this memoir, Levine chronicles her family's struggles to care for her father after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Through telling this story, she explores the cultural, historical, and political meanings of dementia and aging in a "hypercognitive" society that values self-reliance. The medicalization of the normal aging process is also addressed. Levine is a freelance writer who specializes in issues of sex, race, and cultural politics.
