Summary (From the publisher):

Narrated by Sarah, who in the year 2005 finds herself drawn into the tumultuous lives of her unconventional ancestors, Inventing Memory chronicles the lives of Sara's forebears. She calls to memory her great-grandmother Sarah, propelled by a Russian pogrom to America in 1906; her grandmother Salome, who cavorted with Henry Miller in prewar Paris; and finally her mother, Sally, a famous folk singer and emblem of the '60s. Through the paradoxical nature of memory Sarah comes to understand and impart her own story.

"Inventing Memory" is the story of all women on the verge of the 21st century and recalls the saga of the 20th-century woman and her heroic struggle to be free.
