Hear Lloyd Jones talk about his new memoir, A HIstory of Silence.
In A History of Silence, Jones embarks on a quest for the truth about his family. What happened? Why do there seem to be so few stories? Why are there so few mementos? The answers he finds are completely unexpected and change everything.
