Here is a blurb from a recent press release to give you an idea of what the book is about:

“Estate sales have become a common way for people to dispose of their parents’ possessions after they die or move to assisted living. Over the course of a year, Norm Diamond visited countless estate sales in Dallas, Texas, photographing objects that evoke sadness, humor, and ironic commentary on American cultural history. The resulting images are gathered in Diamond’s first monograph: What is Left Behind — Stories from Estate Sales.

The articles Diamond came upon defy conventional expectations: a science project from 1939, a century-old letter from a rejected lover, and a complete collection of Playboy magazines. Poignant photographs of these possessions reveal clues about otherwise unknowable people. They take on a life of their own, both in the images and in the idea they will now move on to new owners.”
