Every Note Played reviewed by Marie

Every Note Played is about the progression of ALS which we know in Australia as Motor Neuron Disease. Reference is made to the late Stephen Hawking but the reader knows that the main character, Richard, a famous concert pianist, must die, despite the many aids he has.

The author, Lisa Genova, describes the ex-wife, who becomes his main carer, as a failed jazz pianist and his daughter as a bright university student. This is a fund-raiser as well as being educational.
