Black Bird Fly Away: Disabled in an Able-bodied World

Front Cover
An important look at disability in America at a time when society faces so many difficult and troubling choices in healthcare and disability. Black Bird Fly Away is a powerful, insightful, and occasionally irreverent collection of writings dealing with the author's personal struggle with disability and with society's difficulty in addressing the subject. This gripping collection of essays and writings takes the reader on a journey through the world of disability with a carefully assembled group of previously published and unpublished works. Black Bird Fly Away doesn't preach; it tells a tough story boldly, sometimes with humor, but always honestly and in ways that will touch the heart and mind of every reader. It is a book that builds a new bridge of understanding between able-bodied and disabled people.
