She learned writing gave her relief, pleasure, and the key to a new community. The essays, fiction, and poetry she gathered for What Happened to You? share differing experiences of women who are disabled or ill. A dancer who broke her neck performing talks of loathing the sense of being on show in the "lofty heights" of her wheelchair until she learned to dance quite differently. One woman gives voice to the undercurrents of anger, uncertainty, fear, and humiliation that colon cancer visits upon her. A disabled adoptive mother finds black humor seeking someone in similar circumstances through the personal ads only to be matched with an "athletic outdoor woman who enjoys hill-walking, climbing, and water sports." Not all of the writing is polished, but most of it comes from the heart and rings true quite loudly. --Francesca Coltrera, 935184, Women, 935176, Specific Groups, 934986, Biographies & Memoirs, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 1080390, United States, 1080396, African American, 1080538, Asian American, 1080560, Classics, 1080606, Hispanic American, 16044931, Humour, 1080636, Native American, 927790, Literature & Fiction, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books

Lois Keith was thirty-five, with a successful career, two daughters, and a partner of many years, when she was hit by a car and paralyzed from the waist down. Over the next few years, she discovered both a community of disabled people and a paucity of literature and public understanding about their lives. In response, she began soliciting the manuscripts that make up "What Happened to You?" , a candid, powerful, and often hilarious collection of fiction, essays, and poetry by women with disabilities. Coming from a wide range of backgrounds and ages, impairments and experiences, the thirty-six women included in the book write on everything from access to abuse, equality to equanimity, in what may well be the definitive volume on living with a disability. At the same time, this anthology tells a universal story about dealing with pain and illness, about overcoming prejudice and unjust legislation, and about the importance, regardless of an individual's fortitude, of creating a community. biographical,biographies,biographies and history,biography and history,classics,contemporary,criticism and theory,disabled,history,history and criticism Women's Studies, New Press, The
