Manor of Memory
MetadataShow full item record
Memory begins in neurons, racing back and forth from the hippocampus to the cortex of the brain. This book explores how malleable and unreliable memory can be; how it manifests in the body: mentally, physically, emotionally; how it mutates and betrays as we age. Through a series of scientific and historical briefs, poetic meditations and memory experiments, I invite the reader to witness my attempt of rewriting moments of trauma while coming to terms with a family in the early stages of memory loss.
