Mr. Kondracke talked about his book Saving Milly: Love, Politics, and Parkinson’s Disease, published by PublicAffairs. The book is a memoir by the political journalist of his relationship with his wife, Milly, and how her battle with Parkinson’s disease transformed their lives. It is also the story of his own transformation from careerist to caregiver and disease activist -- a process that has deepened his religious faith. Finally, it is an exploration of the realities of “disease politics” in the campaign to find a cure for Parkinson’s, and a passionate argument for doubling the government’s investment in medical research. close
