What combination of memory, history, biology, and experience defines us? Acclaimed author of “Hourglass,” Dani Shapiro shares her personal story about identity, paternity, and family secrets—a real-time exploration of the staggering discovery she recently made about her father, and her struggle to piece together the hidden story of her own life. “Inheritance” 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.
