MEMORY OF MY MEMORY
By Gerard Chaliand, Translated from the French by Tito Cohen and Juliet Kepl
The memory of my memory is not what I have lived but what I have inherited, It is the echo of the past, the submerged strata of my story. My saga's dark beginning. The bloodstain within my clenched fist on the day of my birth the tragedy of which I was to inherit as a child. Something I tried to forget. this brief telling of lives beyond the confines of my own was written between 1978 and 2002.
