Ruth is 30 and her life is falling apart: she and her fiancé are moving house, but he's moving out to live with another woman; her career is going nowhere; and then she learns that her father, a history professor beloved by his students, has Alzheimer's. At Christmas, her mother begs her to stay on and help - for a year. 'Goodbye, Vitamin' is the wry, beautifully observed story of that year, as Ruth and her friends attempt to shore up her father's career, she and her mother obsess over the ambiguous health benefits - in the absence of a cure - of dried jellyfish supplements and vitamin pills, and they all try to forge a new relationship with the brilliant, childlike, irascible, sweet old man her father has become.
