Stories of Our Lives

Memory, History, Narrative

Utah State University Press

 The social importance of personal narratives, family saga, and communal legends are well-established in ethnographic and folkloristic literature, but their value for individual self-knowledge is less often demonstrated. Both a memoir and a research project, Stories of Our Lives considers the stories from Frank de Caro’s personal life, as well as the stories he has collected in his years of field research as he explores how the stories we tell, listen to, and learn play an integral role in constructing our temporal selves.
