In Perfect Recall, Ann Beattie tells the story of a woman who has an extraordinary ability to remember everything she has ever seen or heard. She is able to recall events from her childhood all the way up to the present day with perfect accuracy. In spite of her amazing memory, the woman is unable to put her skills to use in her everyday life. She is unable to remember the names of her friends, the date of her wedding, or the order in which she needs to clean her house. The woman is also unable to remember the answers to simple math questions or the names of the presidents in American history. Despite her limitations, the woman continues to use her memory to improve her life by memorizing the lyrics to songs, the ingredients in recipes, and the steps in any complicated craft.; 8vo; 347, [5] pages; Signed by Author.
