Publisher's Summary

In the twenty-third year of their marriage, Sonya Lea's husband, Richard, went in for surgery to treat a rare appendix cancer. When he came out, he had no recollection of their life together: how they met, their wedding day, the births of their two children. All of it was gone along with the rockier parts of their past - her drinking, his anger. Richard could now hardly speak, emote, or create memories from moment to moment. Who he'd been no longer was. Wondering Who You Are braids the story of Sonya and Richard's relationship and those memories he could no longer conjure together with his fateful days in the hospital and through a marriage no longer grounded on decades of shared experience.

What the Critics Say

"Her stunning account of his recovery efforts and her willful refusal to give up on marriage to the stranger occupying her husband’s body is fantastically heartfelt and inspiring." (Booklist)
"An intense and accomplished memoir... This sweet, erotic, wrenching story asks quintessential questions about memory, the constructed self, and love - its challenges and deep compensations." (Priscilla Long, author of The Writer’s Portable Mentor)
"An incredibly intimate and honest memoir, Wondering Who You Are shows more vividly than any work of nonfiction I’ve read in years the endlessly complex and delicate nature of identity. In particular, the book movingly reveals how mutable all relationships are, how metamorphosis on one side of a partnership necessitates metamorphosis on the other - we are all constantly changing." (Peter Mountford, author of The Dismal Science)

So dull

I couldn't finish. didn't care for the lifeless voice of the reader, didn't understand her, and felt as if she were twisting and forming life in order to fit her made up
story.
