|Between Myself and
Them is a book about disability like youve never heard it discussed
before. Gutsy, frank, provocative, and even confrontational, the twenty-three
contributors to this first-person anthology trace the myriad of feelings and
experiences that go along with growing up disabled across different genders,
cultures, classes, and sexualities.
For the first time, young adults share their real experiences living with disability. This collection of first-person narratives and dialogues is grouped into sections pertaining to different aspects of the writers lives, including education and work, family and relationships, health and wellness, self-image and sexual relations and includes photographs of the contributing authors. From invisible conditions like chronic depression and diabetes to more apparent ones like cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, the authors in these memoirs represent a diversity of disabilities and abilities.
Between Myself and Them is a rich and diverse set of stories that challenge a homogeneous interpretation of a group of individuals who are sometimes collectively referred to as the disabled. This book is a valuable resource for families, educators, libraries, community groups, and health and wellness professionals.
