“AN UNCOMFORTABLE, UNPORTUNATE, INVADINENT TRAVEL COMPANION/Mrs. J. PARKINSON. AUGURI PAOLO!!!” tells the story of a climb, of a path, of an incoordinated movement between voluntary muscles and dyskinesias. It is the story of Paolo, father of the author, struck at only 48 years old by a neurodegenerative disease. The disease will no longer allow him to photograph, to climb, to reach his mountains. He will replace this activity by writing diaries and charts on which he will note every symptom, every tremor, every change. It is the story of a man who walks and scrutinizes, analyzes and verifies, falls and gets up again, but his legs no longer take him where he would like to go.
With this book, the author Francesca Di Sopra gives back the last 29 years spent at her father’s side.
