On Sale: October 4, 2011
Add to Wish List
Scott Bolzan went to work on December 17, 2008, like any
other Wednesday. By that afternoon, he'd lost every memory
of his past.
Awakening in a hospital with no memory of who he was or how
he got there, the forty-six-year-old didn’t know that the
petite blonde at his side was his wife of twenty-four years,
Joan—or even what a wife was. He couldn’t remember the
births of his two young-adult children, the daughter he’d
lost, his time as an offensive lineman for the NFL’s
Cleveland Browns, or his flourishing aviation career.
Scott’s life and the lives of everyone who loved him were
forever changed when he slipped, hit his head, and lost
consciousness in his office bathroom, suffering one of the
most severe cases of permanent retrograde amnesia on record.
With heartrending honesty and no shortage of humor, the
Bolzans share their remarkable journey as Scott navigates
his way through a now-unfamiliar world. The challenges are
initially overwhelming: Scott’s debilitating headaches, his
relearning of social etiquette (taking cues from The
Sopranos!), Joan’s grief over the loss of the man she
married and their shared history, the financial burden of
Scott’s lost income, his mounting medical bills, and the
agony of their twenty-year-old son’s struggles with drug
But remarkably, My Life, Deleted is above all else a
celebration of extraordinary perseverance, and of the
enduring love that emerges when we are most tested. Scott
learns to trust his intuition in a way few people ever will,
while Joan taps into a well of patience and resourcefulness
she didn’t know she had. Throughout it all, what
unfolds—against all odds—is an enviable romance as Scott and
Joan fall in love all over again.
Both gut-wrenching and brimming with optimism, the Bolzans’
captivating story makes a powerful statement about
commitment—and the possibility of finding extraordinary
opportunity in life’s greatest challenges.
