Seven Wheelchairs: A Life beyond Polio

27 10 2008

From the author of a new worthwhile book: Seven Wheelchairs: A Life beyond Polio, recently released by The University of Iowa Press.

The memoir is a history — an American tale — of my fifty year wheelchair journey after being struck by both bulbar and lumbar poliomyelitis after a vaccine accident in 1959. The Press says Seven Wheelchairs gives “readers the unromantic truth about life in a wheelchair, he escapes stereotypes about people with disabilities and moves toward a place where every individual is irreplaceable.”

Other reviewers have called Seven Wheelchairs “sardonic and blunt,” “a compelling account,” and “powerful and poetic.”

You can find it through your favorite online bookseller if you want to check it out.
