schema:description"For the author, a psychotherapist, painter, feminist, filmmaker, writer, and disability activist, hearing well-intentioned people tell her, "You're so inspirational!" is patronizing, not complimentary. In this memoir, the author, who has cerebral palsy, describes overcoming the prejudice against disability, not overcoming disability. She addresses the often absurd and ignorant attitudes of strangers, friends, and family. She also examines her own prejudice toward her disabled body, and portrays the healing effects of intimacy and creativity, as well as her involvement with the disability rights community. She intimately reveals herself with honesty and humor and measures her personal growth as she goes from "passing" to embracing and claiming her disability as a source of pride, positive identity, and rebellion. A collage of images about her life, rather than a formal portrait, this memoir celebrates the author's wise, witty, productive, outrageous life, disability and all. -- From publisher's website."@en
