A seeringly honest yet inspirational memoir of how dementia changed a family in ways they never could have imagined.
'Looking for Lionel is a personal story. It is a story of how dementia crept into my family unannounced and left us struggling to hold on to a life that appeared to be slipping away from us like a balloon slipping out of a child's hand. It is a story of fear and courage, shame and pride, sorrow and joy. It is a story of paradox, where the least capable person in our family was, for a time, calling all the shots. It is a story of how our lives changed in ways we never could have imagined.'
Looking for Lionel is a warm, insightful memoir about how dementia entered Sharon Snir's family and left them struggling with fear and sorrow. As Sharon shares her inspirational story, she invites you into her world of laughter and tears. Written for family and friends of those with the disease, it helps readers regain their courage and find the joys of relating in the here and now.

Reviews of Looking for Lionel:

"To write about dementia and to make it sound manageable and even joyful (given certain attitudes and behaviours on the part of carers) is one of those skills not readily available to your average writer. But Sharon Snir in her book Looking for Lionel, has it in spades. ... I found Sharon's story moving in the extreme, written with the tenderness, love and insight that lesser mortals such as I can only aspire to." - Alan Wheatley, VIC
