Reviews

"[A] witty, vulnerable, and insightful collection that highlights a diverse roster of disabled writers. . . . This anthology is not only a joy to read but also a welcome introduction to innovative, intensely liberating approaches that are sure to change the way readers feel about traditional notions of intimacy. A poignant anthology about ability and intimacy that espouses a gorgeously original worldview."
