REBECCA ALEXANDER at Books Inc. Berkeley
Rebecca Alexander shares her remarkable story, Not Fade Away: A Memoir of Senses Lost and Found. Born with a rare genetic mutation called Usher Syndrome type III, Rebecca Alexander has been simultaneously losing both her sight and hearing since she was a child. Now, at 35, with only a sliver of sight and significantly deteriorated hearing, she is a psychotherapist with two masters' degrees from Columbia University, and an athlete who teaches spin classes and regularly competes in extreme endurance races. In Not Fade Away, Rebecca tells her extraordinary story, by turns harrowing, funny and inspiring.
