Greg Marshall taps into the joy, pain, and bizarre family habits that shaped who he's become in this memoir about growing up with cerebral palsy. Unabashedly exploring his sexuality and relationships, Marshall shows how the limp he developed as a child influenced his life, including his clunky stint as a young stage actor, the complexity of dealing with parents who lied about the "tight tendons" in his leg, even the death of his father due to ALS. Yet despite the title, Marshall's leg isn't the protagonist of the author's story, but rather a spectator of a life filled with love and loss. Marshall's honest, open narration reveals the emotion behind his body humor and sarcasm, ultimately foregrounding the humanity of disability and celebrating self-actualization.
