Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

We move to the house I actually remember a year or two later.  The documents say one thing and the aging memory another, but it doesn’t matter; this is where it all begins, in the building below the railroad station where the young man who would be my father alighted from the train on an early August evening in 1947, and which you can see right beneath the window on the left-hand side of the coach if you arrive by train from the north, across the Bridge.
           
This is it; this is the Place.  This is where my world assumes its first colors, lights, smells, sounds, voices, gestures, names, and words.  I’m not sure how far back a human being can remember; some people say they have memories going back to their second year, but my first memories are of snow and cold and therefore probably date from somewhat later, since I was born in October.  But one thing I’m certain of is that even before the point where my memories of that first world of mine begin, it had already set its stamp on so much that even things I can no longer remember aren’t forgotten either.  This is the Place that will continue to form me even when I’m convinced that I’ve formed myself.
