SITTING PRETTY The View from My Ordinary, Resilient, Disabled Body

by | Read by Rebekah Taussig

Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Rebecca Taussig's humor and passion shine as she delivers this illuminating collection of essays about disability. Taussig captures the ups and downs of ordinary life in a disabled body; she discusses dating, navigating her first year of teaching, and searching for an accessible apartment, in particular. As she celebrates disabled lives, culture, and activism, she examines the ableist systems that create barriers for disabled folks: lack of access, stigma, invisibility, harmful media portrayals. Like her writing, her narration is friendly and warm. Playful asides bring levity to the serious subject matter, and her willingness to be vulnerable--in her performance and in the stories she tells--makes this a powerful listen. Part wake-up call, part call to action, this audiobook will resonate with anyone who lives in a body, disabled or nondisabled. L.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2020]
