The Roots That Clutch, a hauntingly true tale, embarks on a 21-year journey alongside Jane, a budding scholar. Through her PhD research on the literary giants T.S. Eliot and Ezra Pound, a shocking discovery unravels: her grandmother's hidden affair with another titan of American Modernism, William Carlos Williams. This revelation throws a shadow of doubt on Jane's own lineage, hinting at a potential biological connection to Williams.
