    in a relaxed and informal manner, Arno Geiger manages to soberly show the ravages on family and loved ones due to dementia and Alzheimer s disease Though stricken by such a terrible long and drawn out death sentence, his father August, being extremely intelligent and clever, offers several moments of joy, clarity, and fascination with what remains of his shrinking world and love for language But no longer able to care for their sick father, and f in a relaxed and informal manner, Arno Geiger manages to soberly show the ravages on family and loved ones due to dementia and Alzheimer s disease Though stricken by such a terrible long and drawn out death sentence, his father August, being extremely intelligent and clever, offers several moments of joy, clarity, and fascination with what remains of his shrinking world and love for language But no longer able to care for their sick father, and finding few caregivers who can actually handle him, they resort to placing him in an old folks home The siblings then proceed to clear out years of clutter from the family home, a house built by hand by their father August Surprisingly, it took two dumpsters to achieve their final goal as August never threw anything away in case one day he might need them And the many rooms their father occupied throughout his life were now reduced to two he might visit on Sundays and special occasions In this fine memoir Arno Geiger composes an interesting story about a terrible disease and Geiger s failure in lessening degrees in getting to know his father as intimately as he determines to Time will eventually take his father completely from him, but not before a gallant attempt at possibility to pick up where they left off so many years ago and recapture a deeper meaning to their relationship Written while his father was still alive, this book is a testament to love and what can still be recovered in its remains

    Watching a parent or other loved one disappear into the mists of Alzheimer s disease is neither easy to watch or, I assume, easy to write about But Austrian author, Arno Geiger, writes a beautiful memoir about his father s decline Arno certainly learnedabout his father s life and thoughts by tending August Geiger as he helped him reconnoiter his changing life and the book speaks to a closeness the two achieved.August Geiger was a sort of Austrian every man Born in 1926, he lived in th Watching a parent or other loved one disappear into the mists of Alzheimer s disease is neither easy to watch or, I assume, easy to write about But Austrian author, Arno Geiger, writes a beautiful memoir about his father s decline Arno certainly learnedabout his father s life and thoughts by tending August Geiger as he helped him reconnoiter his changing life and the book speaks to a closeness the two achieved.August Geiger was a sort of Austrian every man Born in 1926, he lived in the western part of the country, and saw little of life outside his area of Voralberg, til he entered the German army near the end of WW2 Captured by the Russians, he survived a Russian camp and then returned to Wolfurt He married late in life to a woman 15 years younger, and raised four children He worked in his village and was respected by the town s citizens His mental decline, which began when he was in his 60 s, was noticed, but not diagnosed by his family Arno Geiger was helped in caring for his father by his mother, siblings, and hired nurses, until August was placed in a home, The care and visiting continued.As a reader, I got the impression that August Geiger was not close to his children when they were growing up He certainly had a difficult marriage, and at one point, he and his wife split But as Arno writes, he grew closer to his father as he tended him Conversations between the two bridged some of the awkwardness they had had with each other Documents Arno and his family found as they cleaned out the family house, which his father had built himself, answered certain questions of the man, who like many others of his age, seemed like an enigma to his family.Arno Geiger writes that he didn t want to write a book about his father after his father died Since this book was originally published in 2011, I don t know if his father is still alive But alive or dead, Arno has given his father a voice, and an identity

    The book is soulful, full of love for a father disappearing before a son s eyes It is a window into the horror of dementia, but it also suggests what remains character and love for caregiver and patient alike I loved the patience of the story, a quiet pacing that matches years of illness, while the stark reality of death and loss hangs over it.
