Lisa Genova's New Book Portrays Realities of ALS

Jul 3, 2018

On The Point, Mindy Todd hosts this interview with author Lisa Genova about her latest book Every Note Played. It's the story of Richard, an accomplished pianist who now has ALS, and his estranged wife Karina who becomes his reluctant caretaker. As Richard's muscles, voice, and breath fade, both he and Karina try to reconcile their pasts before it's too late. This book is inspired by neuroscience and the human spirit, as are the author's previous New York Times bestselling novels Still Alice and Love, Anthony.
