Where to buy the book

24 Aug 2012

You can now buy Grandmother’s Garden and other stories on our online store (www.beforeweforget.org/buy). There’s also a free bookmark in every book. All proceeds (after postage, registration, and handling charges) will go to a dementia-related cause. If you are in Singapore, you can buy the books at Select Books and at other major bookstores.


Preface: Why a book

21 Aug 2012By Jeremy Boo

Profoundly beautiful stories of love and loss poured into the campaign website as Before We forget grew. But even as the internet affords the luxury of publishing at almost no cost, it deprives these stories from forming a whole and reduces them to moments. Arranged chronologically, these stories cannot build upon each other in a narrative. They remain inchoate. By selecting, editing, and arranging these stories in the company of previously unpublished material, I wish to provide a complete emotional journey.
