An Alzheimer's patient in South Africa gets addicted to a machine that reboots lost memories. A dying woman's seizures force her to relive the time she spent at an orphanage in Nazi Germany. These stories and more make up Memory Wall, a collection of short fiction by Anthony Doerr. Doerr focuses on intensely private, emotional narratives in mostly-alien locales, but the effect on the reader isn't one of exclusion. Memory Wall draws you deep into the lives of its characters with heart-wrenching prose, making you briefly forget where and who you are.
