Little Mamá Forgets

January 13, 2019

Unrealistic, or highly unusual, memory loss.

She seems to remember things that are important to the granddaughter. Which is rather inconsistent with the forms of memory loss that I'm familiar with. She forgets that the granddaughters name is Lucy, not Luciano (which is Little Mamá's name). Why would she call someone else by her own name? Maybe it's Lucy's mother's name, too? I feel like I have to make a lot of excuses for this book to make sense.


When you lose your memory as you age, you lose things kind of randomly and sporadically.
