Do the memories define the man?

This title is now out-of-print

An astronaut dies on a mission, but never fear — he's got a clone, which has been imprinted with his memories. Unfortunately, the clone malfunctions, and fixates on a tragic memory from the dead astronaut's youth. The clone runs away to find answers and solace from his burdensome memories, much to the dismay of his wife and the clone company. 

The Clone Returns Home is a profound meditation on the nature of identity.
