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


Author Shapiro Dani Published by Daunt Books ISBN 9781911547501 EAN 9781911547501 Bic Code P Cover Paperback


In the spring of 2016, through a genealogy website to which she had whimsically submitted her DNA for analysis, Dani Shapiro received the stunning news that her father was not her biological father. Everything she had believed about her identity was a lie. Shapiro’s parents had died when she was in her twenties. With only a handful of figures on a webpage, Shapiro sets out to discover the truth about herself and her history. ‘Inheritance’ is a genetic detective story; a memoir that reads like a thriller. It 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 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.
