Summary
  • What's the problem? -- An ordinary unimaginable love story -- More than a defect -- The real citizens of life -- The price of your body -- Feminist pool party -- The complications of kindness -- What I mean when I talk about "accessibility" -- Epilogue -- Postscript
  • Growing up as a paralyzed girl during the 90s and early 2000s, Taussig only saw disability depicted as something monstrous, inspirational, or angelic. She longed for more stories that allowed disability to be complex and ordinary, uncomfortable and fine, painful and fulfilling. Here she writes about the rhythms and textures of what it means to live in a body that doesn't fit. Taussig reflects on everything from the complications of kindness and charity, living both independently and dependently, experiencing intimacy, and how the pervasiveness of ableism in our everyday media directly translates to everyday life. She shows how disability affects all of us, directly or indirectly, at one point or another. -- Adapted from jacket
