Dani Shapiro discusses ‘Inheritance,’ her memoir about uncovering her family’s hidden history.
Dani Shapiro considers family origin in Inheritance, her memoir about working through tensions with her mother while identifying as her “father’s daughter” for most of her life. Shapiro’s reality is shattered in 2016 after she receives results from a DNA test stating that her father is not biologically related to her. As part of a quest to understand her own identity, origin and definition of family, Shapiro takes the reader on an introspective journey as she learns of her “test tube” conception and the community she is now a part of.
