Abstract:

"It's Jake's birthday. He is sitting in a small plane, being flown over the landscape that has been the backdrop to his life. Now he is in his early sixties, and he isn't quite the man he used to be. He has lost his wife, his son is in prison, and he is about to lose his past. Jake has Alzheimer's. As the disease takes hold of him, Jake struggles to hold on to his personal story but it becomes increasingly elusive and unreliable. What happened to his daughter? And why exactly is his son in prison? What went so wrong in his life? Is there anything he'll be able to salvage from the wreckage? Beauty, perhaps, the memory of love. Or nothing at all?--Publisher description.
