Summary
After contracting polio as a child, the author progressed from braces and crutches to a manual wheelchair to a power wheelchair--but loneliness has remained a constant, from the wild claustrophobia of a child in body casts to just yesterday, trapped at home, gasping from pain. This memoir-in-essays explores the intersection of disability, queerness, and female desire with frankness and humor. She presents the adventures of flourishing within a world of uncertain tomorrows: kayaking alone through swamps with alligators; negotiating planes, trains, and ski lifts; scoring free drugs from dangerous men; getting trapped in a too-deep snow drift without crutches. It is literature of the body in which her lifelong struggle with isolation and independence--complete with tiresome frustrations, slapstick moments, and grand triumphs--are wound up in the long history of humanity's relationship to the natural world
