The book cover for Not Fade Way: A Memoir of Senses Lost and Found by Rebecca Alexander

NOT FADE AWAY: A Memoir of Senses Lost and Found (Gotham, September 2014), by Rebecca Alexander

Penguin Random House's Gotham Books describes Not Fade Away as "the extraordinary story of a spirited young woman who is gradually losing her sight and hearing. At 35 years young, with only a sliver of sight and significantly deteriorated hearing, Rebecca is a psychotherapist with two masters’ degrees from Columbia University, and she is an athlete who teaches spin classes and who regularly competes in extreme endurance races. Both a memoir of the senses and a unique look at the obstacles we all face – physical, psychological and philosophical – Rebecca’s life is an exquisite reminder to live each day to its fullest. A harrowing, funny and inspiring story of courage."
