‘Shobna Gulati is the Northern heroine of a nation’ – Lemn Sissay



Remember Me? is a memoir about caring for a parent with dementia and the memories that resurface in the process.



In her first book, Shobna Gulati sets out to reclaim her mother’s past after her death, and in turn, discovers a huge amount about herself and their relationship.

Remember Me? captures the powerful emotions that these memories hold to both Shobna and her mother; secrets they had collectively buried and also the concealment of her mother’s condition. What ensues is a story of cultural assimilation, identity and familial shame.

Reviews

Shobna Gulati is the Northern heroine of a nation.
Lemn Sissay
Gulati's book not only describes the complexities of caring (we must not forget its joys, she says, alongside its difficulties) and her mother's dementia, it is also an exploration of identity.
The Guardian
Lucid and probing.
