Carolyn Abraham on The Juggler's Children

"Carolyn Abraham explores the stunning power and ethical pitfalls of using genetic tests to answer questions of genealogy — by cracking the genome of her own family. Armed with DNA kits, Abraham criss-crosses the globe, taking cells from relatives and strangers, a genetic journey that turns up far more than she bargained for — ugly truths and moral quandaries. With lively writing and a compelling personal narrative, The Juggler's Children tackles profound questions around the genetics of identity, race and humanity, and tells a big story about our small world, with vivid proof that genes bind us all to the branches of one family tree."
