Revealing his intimate knowledge of the mind and passion for New Orleans' rich, exotic culture, Dr. Nicolas Bazan's Una Vida: A Fable of Music and the Mind takes readers on a tantalizing journey to the secret recesses of the brain in his spellbinding debut novel about a hauntingly poignant jazz musician whose memory is slipping into the abyss of Alzheimer's, and a driven neuroscientist, Alvaro Cruz, who's desperately trying to reconstruct her fragmented memory, believing it to be key to his own life's mysteries.

"Una Vida" is filled with delightful twists and unexpected turns, all centered around one of the greatest gifts New Orleans has offered the world ˝ jazz. But the story will also deeply touch anyone who has witnessed the heartbreaking deterioration of a loved one's memory as it is consumed by the unforgiving encroachment of Alzheimer's.

"This mystical, deeply provocative novel portrays the anguish of AlzheimerÝs by contrast with the brilliance of the human brain in creating reality from dreams," Leeza Gibbons, founder of Leeza's Place (for the families of Alzheimer victims).

"Nicolas Bazan is a born storyteller. His story unfolds with many surprises. ItÝs told with great compassion and has the gentle qualities of a sort of fairytale," Edmond Fischer, Nobel Laureate in Medicine or Physiology,1992.

However, it's more than Bazan's neurosciences know-how and adept storytelling that elevates Una Vida. Bazan's compassion drives his story straight to the heart. Having witnessed a beloved aunt suffer a seizure while walking him to a music lesson when he was a young boy, Bazan vowed to spend the rest of his life studying the causes behind seizures, stroke, blindness and other debilitating diseases of the brain in hopes of discovering therapies to slow down and/or cure those diseases. His empathy for those suffering from diseases of the mind is clearly manifest in Una Vida.
