Author Alex Wagner, the only child of an Irish-Luxembourger father and a Burmese mother, has always felt rootless and alone, so she traces her genealogy, visits her ancestral lands, and engages in the “greedy sport” of genetic testing in an effort to find “her people”. The results are inconclusive, but Wagner fashions an entertaining tale out of her journeys to Burma, Luxembourg and the high-tech world of commercial DNA analysis.
Recommended especially for readers interested in finding their own roots; this book might convince them that what is happening in the here and now is just as important.
