looking into your voice is a collection of conversations offering alternative and beautiful insights into the Alzheimer’s mind.
This beautiful poem of a book, looking into your voice~the poetic and eccentric realities of alzheimer’s, is a collection of conversations offering alternative and beautiful insights into the Alzheimer’s mind. Celebrating the revelatory eloquence of the altered realities of dementia, these vignettes are the voice of author Cathie Borrie’s mother (Joan Borrie), recorded during her experience with Alzheimer’s. The mother’s voice weaves throughout the work with insight, humor and an astonishing poetic sensibility, challenging the negative stereotypes pervasive in the current and often limiting geography of dementia.
About the author
Born in Vancouver, Cathie has had an extensive and diverse working life which includes careers in health, law and business. Beginning as a nurse, she went on to attain a Masters of Public Health from Johns Hopkins University, graduated from Law School at the University of Saskatchewan and obtained her Certificate in Creative Writing from Simon Fraser University. Excerpts from her book, The Long Hello, have been shortlisted three times in the CBC Literary Awards. In 2010, Cathie was invited to speak at MoMA in NYC for World Alzheimer’s Day. Cathie presents at international conferences and as part of her determination to change public perception is creating performance pieces with music, film and dance.
