Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

From early childhood, Rousso struggled to find her place in the world… When she writes of the psychotherapy institute where she was training asking her to leave… she, and her reader, recognize the prejudice she has faced. …its painful honesty is affecting. December 24, 2012

Review

"An inspirational affirmation of the unique worth of every individual." -Kirkus Reviews, December 15th 2012

"Rousso is an activist, artist, educator, social worker, psychotherapist, writer, painter and advocate who has worked in the disability rights field. The book follows her journey from 'passing' - pretending that she didn't have cerebral palsy - to embracing her disability. In the late '70s, she began exploring her disability identity, and she writes with honesty and power." -Jewish Woman, Winter 2012

From early childhood, Rousso struggled to find her place in the world... When she writes of the psychotherapy institute where she was training asking her to leave...she, and her reader, recognize the prejudice she has faced. ...its painful honesty is affecting. December 24, 2012 Publishers Weekly

"Rousso's story of coming to terms with disability is at one unique and universal...Rousso's compelling story is less a memoir of endurance than a fine model for feminist development."--Ms. Magazine, February 2013

"I've known Harilyn Rousso as a powerful activist and gifted artist, but with this revelatory book, she becomes something even more rare: a storyteller who conveys her uniqueness, and so helps us to discover our own. This book is irresistible to read, honest, insightful and universal."-Gloria Steinem


“It's Harilyn's hope that her book will reach the broadest possible audience. That includes the disability community, especially young women. . . . Harilyn also wants to reach the rest of us, those interested in women's studies, human rights, the arts, creativity, fans of memoirs, and people who just like a good story. And Harilyn does tell a good story. It spoke to me, especially given the long war I have waged against my own female body.”
–Huffington Post/ICS Voices, February 2013


"Don’t call it inspirational: call it energizing. It is written in short chapters, with an accessible style that is alternately funny, wry, serious and acerbic."
—Chronicle of Higher Education blog, Tenured Radical, March 2013
