In this empowering memoir, Ben Mattlin describes living a normal life. Why is that interesting? Because Mattlin was born with spinal muscular atrophy, a congenital weakness from which he was expected to die in childhood. Not only did this author get through childhood, he became one of the first students in a wheelchair to attend Harvard, from which he graduated and, over time, became a professional writer. His life so far has paralleled the growth of the disability rights movement, meaning that in some ways Mattlin did not feel that he was disadvantaged, merely different. This witty memoir is told without self-pity or cheap grabs for reader's tears; it is told with engrossing intelligence and a unique perspective on disability that you won't forget.
