* Half the Kingdom by Lore Segal


I was confused by¬†Half the Kingdom, and perhaps that just the effect that the author was seeking — but it went over my head. You see, it is a story of a strange epidemic of Alzheimer’s striking the seemingly healthy and relatively young patients of an emergency room, patients who then disassemble in various, occasionally tragic ways but often with a good sense of humor. Alas, I could only tolerate so many pages of deluded characters.
