When prolific and acclaimed author Paul West suffered a devastating stroke — robbing him of his ability to use language — it could have been the end. He could have given up and lived out his remaining days in a nursing home But he didn’t. West made a remarkable and heroic recovery, under the loving and brilliant care of his longtime wife and fellow bestselling author Diane Ackerman.

Recognizing that textbook rehabilitation was not the best therapy for her husband, Ackerman took it upon herself to build one that was more appropriate. Patiently working hour after hour, day after day, month after month paid off. Now Diane Ackerman tells their story. It is about both of them, naturally, as it’s the best kind of love story. The book is called “One Hundred Names for Love.”
