520    Rough's first-person account of carrying the gene for 
       hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia includes monologues by 
       her grandfather Earl, who died when she was a baby. His 
       illness from the genetic disorder--characterized by sparse
       hair, cone-shaped teeth, inability to sweat, and 
       distinctive facial features, including a deformed nose--is
       carried invisibly by mothers and passed to sons. Testing 
       for carriers is now possible, and Rough recognizes with 
       excruciating acuteness that, along with the certainty the 
       test confers comes the potential for moral crisis should 
       she and her husband conceive a son. Readers will be moved 
       by her emotional pain, but equally affecting is Earl's. 
       Whether speaking of his siblings' childhood embarrassment 
       about his appearance or his increasing drug use (begun to 
       aid his sleep), which eventually had him stealing his own 
       company's pharmaceutical assets,  is the haunting voice of
       the past that overshadows the present in this compelling
