Professor Mark Freeman of the Psychology department at the College of the Holy Cross reads excerpts from his book Do I Look at You with Love: Reimagining the Story of Dementia (Brill, 2021). "Do I look at you with love?" were the words uttered by his mother when she learned, once again, that he was her son. This book explores the experience of dementia as it transpired during the course of the final twelve years of her life, from the time of her diagnosis until her death in 2016 at age 93. As a longtime student of memory, identity, and narrative, as well as the son of a woman with dementia, Prof. Freeman had a remarkable opportunity to try to understand and tell her story. Part narrative psychology, part memoir, part meditation, Freeman’s moving story is emblematic of nothing less than the bittersweet reality of life itself.
