Axioms about the role the past plays in our present are often evoked as if they are timeless and self-evident truths. They are neither, yet still we are persuaded by them. In a fusion of thinking and storytelling Tumarkin explores what this tells us about our culture and how we live. The past shapes the present — but often the past is nothing less than the beating heart of the present. So, how to speak of the power that the past — ours, our family’s, our culture’s — wields now?
