's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: anthologies

Reading these essays/reflections was a deeply moving experience for me as a feminist, a Latina, and a non-disabled person. I felt like I was having a long, late-night conversation with each author about topics that are both abstract and very personal at the same time: hope, despair, resistance, the limits and the potential of each of us as individuals and in community.

The book is published by the Disability Visibility Project, rather than a conventional press, and in an e-book-only release (for reasons of accessibility), so it probably won't get the same review coverage that more traditionally published titles do. Hopefully we individual book lovers can spread the word to each other.
