Nicole Krauss' book "Great House" is about remembering. It takes the form of 8 short stories about four people who have owned a large, multi-drawered desk at one time or another. The desk was originally owned by a Jewish family in Hungary prior to World War II and eventually makes its way back to that same family. I didn't like the book as much as I'd expected to. Wish I'd had time to re-read it, but I have another book that is due back at the library in a week.
