Memoir, 256 pp. 2019
Gad reflects on her experiences as an American biracial Jew. Much of the focus is on her caring for her racist great-aunt, who is now suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Invoking the Hebrew word yerusha (inheritance), this memoir explores the inheritance of identity, disease, melanin, hate, and love.
