Item Description

When Laura Estreich is born, her eyes present a puzzle: Does their shape indicate Down syndrome or simply the fact that she has a Japanese grandmother? In this powerful memoir, poet and stay-at-home dad George Estreich reflects on his daughter’s inheritance – from the family history that precedes her, to the legacy of her genes, to mistaken portrayals of Down syndrome today, tracing contemporary errors to historical sources. Against this backdrop, he shows us a child unlike any other – quirky and real, loved for everything ordinary and extraordinary about her.
