Left Neglected deals with a little known, but devastating injury. Sarah Nickerson is a 37-year-old, overachieving multitasker with a Harvard MBA and a demanding job as vice-president at a Boston consulting firm. Her husband works at a struggling tech start-up and shares in the upbringing of their three children. Then…a car accident…and a traumatic brain injury that leaves Sarah with left neglect, a lack of awareness of anything to her left, includng the left side of her own body. Sarah struggles parallel those of her 7-year-old son, just diagnosed with ADHD. She comes to a healing of body, mind and finally the acceptance that normal is overrated. Lisa Genova (Still Alice, 2009) once again personalizes an actual disabling brain condition to create moving fiction.
