Barbara E. Brewster-WhiteheadISBN: 0805952209;
Book Description"Who am I?" This is a question that most people have asked themselves at one time or another. However, few people have delved into their childhoods, geneology and culture to answer this question. In My Name Is Not Loretta: Alzheimer's, Senility and Identity in America, one woman shares her experiences of dealing not only with the senility of both of her parents, but also of the discovery of her own identity. Through Barbara Brewster-Whitehead's use of family interviews and geneological documentation, the author incorporates how family histories and dynamics ultimately influence future generations. Brewster-Whitehead shows us how the "mysterious web of identity involves paradoxes, discoveries, and transformations." Only then canwe begin to answer the question, "Who Am I?"
