Thirty-four-year-old Rebecca Alexander is a psychotherapist, a spin instructor, a volunteer, and an athlete. She is also almost completely blind, with significantly deteriorated hearing. Not Fade Away is a deeply moving exploration of the obstacles we all face-physical, psychological, and philosophical. Rebecca's story is an exquisite reminder to live each day to its fullest. In Not Fade Away, Rebecca charts her journey from a teenager who tried to hide her disabilities to a woman who is able to face the world exactly as she is. Even though Rebecca inhabits a gradually darkening world, she refuses to let that stop her from living life with joy and enthusiasm.

"Rebecca Alexander's indomitable spirit spills out on to the pages of this incredible memoir. She will lift you up . . . the way she did for me." ---Hoda Kotb, co-anchor of the Today show
Definitely. Rebecca's experiences are by turns unique and universal. She has had to come to terms with herself, her sexuality, what it manes to have a disability...
I have, and for the most part, I do like her narration. I will definitely check out more of her performances.
In portions, both.
Rebecca Alexander is by turns an enigma and an every-woman. She is both losing her sight and hearing, and has taken the controversial step of receiving a cochlear implant.
She is strong, capable, and very self-aware. Kudos to her for writing this book; I hope she writes more!
