This intimate and affecting story of the dramatic decline suffered by an elderly man afflicted by Alzheimers disease draws its strength from the first-person narrative voice of the man himself.

Initially lucid, if fatigued, 71-year-old Maarten Klein lives with his wife Vera in Gloucester, Mass. Dutch-born, they endured with difficulty the Nazi invasion of the Netherlands before emigrating to the U.S., where Maarten worked as a secretary for the Intergovernmental Maritime Consultative Organization.

While Maarten has long considered himself a socially marginal figure, in other respects the Kleins lives are unremarkable but for his intensity of perception, sustained in sharply convincing fragments even as his faculties disintegrate.

I seem to lose words like another person loses blood, he observes helplessly, and resolves to invent a life for myself from minute to minute, but ultimately becomes the sole and poignant survivor of my own language.
