schema:description"This memoir begins with the emergence of a secret. Wendy Fairey was 46 and it was five weeks after the death of her mother, Sheilah Graham, the well-known Hollywood columnist and writer, that Fairey learned who her true father was--the British empiricist philosopher, A. J. Ayer. She had known Freddie Ayer since her first trip to England at age eleven, when he took her to a bookstore and bought her Tess of the d'Urbervilles. She liked and admired him far more than her putative father, Trevor Westbrook, the man Sheilah Graham had married to legitimize her baby. But she had not, while her mother was alive, known the truth. One of the Family tells of Fairey's quest to reclaim her father--still alive at the time she learned his identity--and, even more importantly, to come to terms in her mind with her mother, who had been such a mythic presence in her daughter's life, and whose enormous lie, coming posthumously to light, threatened their relationship in its now revised perspective."@en
