In case anyone's looking to fill this category...

I just started Lowboy by Wray and it's quite good.

In HF forum, at leat one person listed The Gargoyle by Davidson as one of his/her top 10 for 2012, and it had good reviews.

I also had recommended to me (& read good reviews of) Turn of Mind by Alice LaPlante.

Put Still Alice by Lisa Genova on my list.  Also noticed that if you read fantasy there is a free Kindle copy available of I Know Not about a man who has amnesia.  Reviews are pretty good.

I put A Beautiful Mind on my list in that category.  I have wanted to read the book ever since the movie came out.

I'm finishing up Other People by Martin Amis, about a woman with amnesia.  I think Amis is a brilliant writer anyway, and his descriptiveness comes into play in a big way...how do you describe clouds from the point of view of someone who has no idea what they are?
