DNA tests routinely caution the user that results might be disturbing, or unsettling, or unnerving. DNA tests can solve– or lead to– mysteries about one’s family, heritage, and core identity.  Bestselling author Dani Shapiro spits into a DNA test tube on a whim. Her father turns out not to be her birth father: a personal earthquake, which jolts Dani into writing and solving her own detective story about who she is, as opposed to who she thought she was.

In this greatly acclaimed book, Dani asks fundamental questions that tug at us, regardless of DNA tests: What makes us up as individuals? What determines who we are, who our parents are, and what is the definition of family?  When we find out such troubling and rattling truths, why are relationships altered, and should they be?  In her inimitable grace, Dani Shapiro speaks to her readers as if we are sitting there with her, discussing the enormity of the ethical questions in DNA testing, and even in searching for our paternity, our roots.

In conversation with singer/songwriter Liz Phair, whose debut album, Exile in Guyville, was ranked by Rolling Stone as among the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. She’s earned Grammy nominations, and will tour with Alanis Morissette in the coming months. Liz is also the author of a new book, Horror Stories: A Memoir.
