Publisher's Synopsis

EXTRAORDINARY MEMOIR OF A LIFE AND LOVE TORN APART BY DEMENTIA

When her husband Tony was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2004, Steph Booth had to say goodbye to life as she knew it. The disease encroached into their lives, taking away Tony day by day.

Open and honest, but with heart and warmth, Steph reveals and the hardship of caring for Tony and losing herself in the midst of it. Along the way we learn of the people they were, the dynamics of their relationship - Tony's theatrics, Steph's stubbornness - effortlessly captured with lightness and humour.

Borne out of her much-loved Irish Times column, Married to Alzheimer's is a poignant account of a life and love torn apart by dementia and a bond that was unshakeable. Tony was never a conformist. An actor, rebel, raconteur. The frustration, the grief, the laughter, the anger, the joy meant life with him was anything but ordinary.
