Caring for Cathy

by

A man without a past and a woman without a future. This is the story of a friendship between a young musician, David, who has lost his memory in a car accident, and an older woman, Cathy, who is dying from Huntington's disease.

Both are confined to Denby Hall, a pleasant, unconventional neurological nursing home near Brighton. The home does not allow dogs, so David takes it upon himself to help Cathy to see her dog occasionally. In Cathy's words, she and David are "marooned on an island of misunderstanding".

As David's efforts stir up trouble from the home, the nature of Cathy's relationships with those closest to her are revealed in this light hearted look at the horrors of degenerative disease and its effect on those who care.

Gil Hogg

Gil Hogg has drawn on his experience as a corporate lawyer to write two thrillers, A Smell of Fraud and The Predators. His work for a national drug dependency charity for several years brought him into close touch with the culture of dependency, and led to his non-fiction book about how to handle stress, Teaching Yourself Tranquillity. Caring for Cathy is based on his family's experience of caring for a loved one with the degenerative disease, Huntington's.
