Andrea Gillies wins Wellcome Trust Book Prize
I have to add my congratulations to the wonderful Andrea Gillies (one of the funniest and most clever of my twitter friends -- @andreagillies) for winning the 2009 Wellcome Trust Book Prize. Her book, Keeper, unflinchingly documents Gillies' full-time care of her mother-in-law, who suffers from Alzheimer's. Read about it in the Times here, the Bookseller here & the Guardian here.
