Toine Heijmans is a writer and publicist at Volkskrant Magazine. He writes inimitably about his father and his new friend, Dr. Alzheimer. “My father has a new friend. They’ve known each other for a while. Together they sit in my father’s chair, the chair in which no one else can sit. It is not an easy sight.” His much-read columns in the Volkskrant Magazine together form a journey through the realm. His book is a loving account of a fight against dementia, written in enchanting language.
