Deborah Wearing does a great job of bringing you into her life as she struggles with her husbands incredible amnesia. I found myself getting frustrated reading about the "loop" of questions she had to answer over and over again. Her compassion, commitment and love for her husband is quite evident.

Clive Wearing has one of the most extreme cases of amnesia ever known. In 1985, a virus completely destroyed a part of his brain essential for memory, leaving him trapped in a limbo of the constant present. Every conscious moment is for him as if he has just come round from a long coma, an endlessly repeating loop of awakening. A brilliant conductor and BBC music producer, Clive was at the height of his success when the illness struck. As damaged as Clive was, the musical part of his brain seemed unaffected, as was his passionate love for Deborah, his wife.
Deborah Wearing is a former head of PR at the John Lewis Partnership. She campaigned for ten years for special medical services for brain injury patients and founded a national charity, the Amnesia Association. She now combines writing with working as an administrator for the NHS.
Deborah Wearing tenderly embraces her husband while he whispers sweet nothings. Now Deborah, a communications officer for the NHS, has written a book about Clive's illness: Forever Today. You're beautiful,' he tells his wife. More than an informative guide for the thousands of carers for brain-injury survivors, it's an eloquent biography of a man who was once a world expert on early music and an inspiring, if formidable, conductor. After Clive was finally established in a new special hospital, she fled to America to start her life over again.
