"Evocative Objects is a collection of great richness and complexity. Reading these essays transforms one's sense of the most commonplace objects, and prompts us to explore the palimpsest of the past within us." --Jill Ker Conway, President Emerita, Smith College, author of The Road from Coorain "Original, absorbing, and beautifully written, this collection of essays will forever change the way you look at the objects in your life." --Helen Epstein, author of Children of the Holocaust and Where She Came From: A Daughter's Search for her Mother's History
