Book Review.

Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love by Dani Shapiro.

Reviewer:  Sherry Schmidt.

Inheritance is a book about secrets–secrets within families, kept out of shame or self-protectiveness; secrets we keep from one another in the name of love. It is the story of a woman’s urgent quest to unlock the story of her own identity, a story that has been scrupulously hidden from her for more than fifty years, years she had spent writing brilliantly, and compulsively, on themes of identity and family history. It is a book about the extraordinary moment we live in–a moment in which science and technology have outpaced not only medical ethics but also the capacities of the human heart to contend with the consequences of what we discover.

NOTE: Because our building is closed all meetings will be on Zoom 384 422 5785 until further notice.
