These books/long essays, especially the latter, are also fascinating time capsules of social mores that feel both passe and terribly fresh and relevant. You can read a description and excerpt at this link...if you're intrigued, see the link at the end of this list to borrow it from another library using Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Show less
Six Ways of Looking at Crip Time | Samuels | Disability Studies Quarterly

Disability and illness have the power to extract us from linear, progressive time with its normative life stages and cast us into a wormhole of backward and forward acceleration, jerky stops and starts, tedious intervals and abrupt endings. Some of us contend with the impairments of old age while still young; some of us are treated like children no matter how old we get. The medical language of illness tries to reimpose the linear, speaking in terms of the chronic, the progressive, and the terminal, of relapses and stages. But we who occupy the bodies of crip time know that we are never linear, and we rage silently—or not so silently—at the calm straightforwardness of those who live in the sheltered space of normative time."

This diary is an amazing journey into the visceral experience of reading -- she talks about where she was sitting, what she was eating, what was going on in her life, and the complex counterplay with the text in a way that I found completely disarming. I would read a whole book of essays like this! "In the summer of 2017, an evil clown took over my life." Show less
