In My Mother Has 4 Noses, Jonatha Brooke tells of her experiences caring for her mother during the final two years of her life. Quite the character, Jonatha's mother was a published poet, a clown, and a Christian Scientist. She also had dementia . . . as well as 4 noses. Jonatha began chronicling her experiences - "the daily theatre of loving and caring for someone with dementia" - and her writings at first became a popular blog, then grew into a collection of 11 new songs (now an acclaimed album, which was released on February 18, 2014).
