‘Inheritance’

My friend Lisa Scully, owner of the Locust Valley Bookstore, does spot-on reviews and this is her take on Dani Shapiro’s recently released memoir, ‘Inheritance’ — “I loved this book and couldn’t put it down. It reads like a novel and yet every word is true. Sometimes we make seemingly blasé decisions that end up affecting everything that we do. Well, that’s what happened to Dani when she spit into a glass vial and sent away for her DNA results. Assuming she would learn that her family was indeed (ho hum) her family, she was sent reeling when the test indicated that her father was not really her biological father. Yes, this stuff happens all the time, but we read the sensationalized versions while standing at the supermarket check-out counter. This is a real book with cliffhangers, suspense and mystery. It is about secrets and identity. Two thumbs up for Inheritance!”

Sounds perfect for this wintry long weekend.
