In 2004 Rachel Hadas' husband, George Edwards, a composer and professor of music at Columbia University, was diagnosed with early-onset dementia at the age of sixty-one. "Strange Relation" is her account of 'losing' George. Her narrative begins when ...
George's illness can no longer be ignored, and ends in 2008 soon after his move to a dementia facility (when, after thirty years of marriage, she finds herself no longer living with her husband). Within the cloudy confines of those difficult years, years when reading and writing were an essential part of what kept her going, she 'tried to keep track...tried to tell the truth'.
