Through him, we see her measured steps into the mysterious depths of neurological illness: the misplaced glasses, kitchen catastrophes and anecdotes told over and over to a family overcome with fearful sympathy. His strenuous efforts to make sense of his mothers suffering lead him to learn all he can about her illness, renewing contact with his neurologist brother in the process. But medical science can do nothing to ease loss, and genetics now routinely predicts destinies that medicine is powerless to avert.More than a tale of isolated tragedy, Scar Tissue explores the fragile lines of memory, their configuration in identity, and the ways in which both are one moment formed and the next shattered.

Nominated for the Booker Prize, this is an intensely personal novel about family, love in all its guises and the ultimate triumph of life over loss. A television movie based on Scar Tissue will be airing soon on CBC.
