Description
Information
In the luminous and beautiful title story,'memory Wall', a young boy in South Africa comes to possess an old woman's secret, a piece of the past with the power to redeem a life.
In 'The River Nemunas', a teenaged orphan moves from Kansas to Lithuania to live with her grandfather, and discovers a world in which myth becomes real.
'Village 113' is about the building of the Three Gorges Dam and the seedkeeper who guards the history of a village soon to be submerged.
And in 'Afterworld,' the radiant, cathartic final story, a woman who escaped the Holocaust is haunted by visions of her childhood friends in Germany, yet finds solace in the tender ministrations of her grandson.

The stories in Memory Wall show us how we figure the world, and show Anthony Doerr to be one of the masters of the form.
