“Inside the O’Briens” by Lisa Genova. In this novel, Genova does for Huntington’s disease what her novel “Still Alice” did for Alzheimer’s. Joe O’Brien is a 44-year-old Boston cop who is diagnosed with Huntington’s disease, which is hereditary and incurable. He might have passed the gene on to his four children, who must now decide whether to get tested, themselves. Genova effectively dramatizes the challenge of a devastating disease that affects several generations simultaneously and demands searing emotional, logistical, and financial choices.
