WHAT'S DOING . . .

April 02, 1995

Sherri Szeman, author of the award-winning first novel "The Kommandant's Mistress," is hard at work on a second novel. "It's about a family whose mother is diagnosed with Alzheimer's. I just finished typing the Living Will and the Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care," said Szeman. "The catch-22 is that the Living Will is only valid if you're of sound mind, and Alzheimer's patients are considered of unsound mind." Why Alzheimer's after the account of a Nazi concentration camp's commandant and the Jewish prisoner who becomes his victim and mistress? "Well it just seems like an important moral issue."
