Coming soon.... An entirely new website

The book about Alzheimer's disease is done. Now to this website and also sketching out some other ideas. Been reading Kafka and Keats and Georges Simenon. 

I wrote a book to make sense of this disease of the brain and problem of the mind. It blends narrative and history. I've uncovered a great misunderstanding in the early history, in the years that immediately followed Alois Alzheimer's 1907 case report. Science was at work, but so too a strange brew of culture and dark and ugly politics -- sort of like the world we are in now. I close with a vision of how we can live with this disease. Spoiler alert -- it shall require of us more than biomarkers & drugs. Like covid19, this is a humanitarian crisis that demands a humanitarian response.
