Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love by Dani Shapiro | Conversation Starters
Author Dani Shapiro discovers that she is not the biological daughter of her father. The life she thought she completely knew crumbled all of a sudden. She had relentlessly examined her life in the four memoirs she has written in the past and is shocked to realize that her life mission to know the truth about herself is still beyond her grasp. This book explores the wider implications of her genealogical discovery, the moral aspect of it, how sperm donors get to donate their genes, the conflict between the privacy accorded to donors as against the right of their offspring to know their identities. Shapiro is not satisfied with easy answers.
Inheritance is the New York Times Editors' Choice and is cited the Most Anticipated Book of 2019 by LitHub, Washington Post, Bustle, Vulture, Real Simple, and PopSugar.
