Life is not what one lived, but what one remembers and how one remembers it in order to recount it.

—GABRIEL GARCíA MáRQUEZ

In writing this book, I’ve endeavored to be as factual as possible, turning to journals, letters, scrapbooks, photo albums, report cards, recipes, articles, and other records of my personal and familial history. But in instances where I could not substantiate a physical or emotional detail, I turned to memory, knowing full well that it is revisionist and that each time we remember something, we alter it slightly, massaging our perspective and layering it with new understanding in order to make meaning in the present.

A buried truth, that’s all a lie really is.
