Erica gives an overview of the book:

First published in 1997, Inventing Memory is about four generations of remarkable women from a Jewish-American family—their triumphs, tragedies, scandals, and love affairs—as related by Sara Solomon, the youngest of these women. While trying to chronicle their history, the story becomes essentially hers, as she comes to understand the nature of memory, the way all of us both invent and assimilate our ancestors. In learning about the women in her family, Sara discovers how to create her own future.
