Somebody I Used to Know

Wendy Mitchell

How do you build a life when all that you know is changing? How do you conceive of love when you can no longer recognise those who mean the most to you? A phenomenal memoir - the first of its kind - Somebody I Used to Know is both a heart-rending tribute to the woman Wendy Mitchell once was, and a brave affirmation of the woman dementia has seen her become.


This courageous, extraordinary book captures what it is like to experience dementia. Wendy is inspirational in her unsparing – but never depressing – account of early-onset Alzheimers.  A lucid and candid guide to survivors, relatives and carers. Everyone should read this.
