Editorial Reviews

Review

"Rill's brilliant novel about Alzheimer's is so well-crafted, the fully-human characters seem real...unvarnished prose reminiscent of Hemingway's straightforward style." —5-Star Clarion/Foreword Review

"This book on dementia is as amazing as it is informative! Best book of 2014." —Alzheimer's Weekly

"An uncommonly brave book...Rill invests every page with true feeling." —Starred BlueInk Review

"Rill skillfully portrays the various stages of the disease...Readers who have a loved one with Alzheimer's might find some comfort in the novel's insights." —Kirkus Review

"The mark of a good novel is one that makes you laugh and cry and An Absent Mind hits the target dead center. Saul takes you into the heart of a person who knows something is going terribly wrong." —L.S. Fisher, Early onset Alzheimer's blog

"This book really shows what someone with Alzheimer's goes through, as well as the experiences of those who care for him." —Pat White, Memories from my life Alzheimer's blog

"Witness Alzheimer's from many perspectives...Rill tells this heart-wrenching story in an uplifting manner that will engage the reader from the beginning to the end of the Reimer family's journey." —EYES IN Books

"It is a powerful story told in a unique way. I recommend this book." —Bob Lowry, author of Satisfying Retirement

"Through the art of fiction, Rill gives a harrowing, hard-hitting look at the true nature of Alzheimer's. It is both shocking and informative." —Stuart Nulman, Montreal Times

"This is a novel, but anyone who has been involved in the care of someone with dementia will know it is not fiction." —Linda Bernstein, nextavenue.org (PBS)

About the Author

Born in Montreal, and later moving to California where he graduated from UCLA with a Masters in Business, Eric Rill went on to run a global hotel group. After discovering his passion for adventure, he left the corporate world, travelling and enjoying the excitement of skydiving, scaling volcanoes, scuba diving--and, to his surprise, stand-up comedy. Somewhere along the way he also discovered the joy of writing fiction.

His first two best sellers were thrillers, PINNACLE OF DECEIT and THE INNOCENT TRAITOR. Then came AN ABSENT MIND, a novel about family and adversity. His latest, THE WINDOW WASHER, inspired by a real life situation, takes the reader into the world of killers, money launderers, moral and immoral cops, and corrupt politicians.

Now living in Panama, Eric is available to connect with your book club through Skype. Just contact him at author@ericrill.com
