The pretty one

Coming 2019 from Atria Books

The Pretty One

​The Pretty One is about a journey to joy.

 

The journey isn’t easy, the essay collection covers loss, grief, self-esteem issues, and more but it gets back to joy and I think that is very important. Disability is more than what you can see. My intention with this collection is to give a contemporary voice to the disabled body that is so often portrayed as mute, facile, or vapid.

 

The Pretty One will inspire able-bodied and disabled people alike to go after their dreams and understand that pity is not necessary. Care, respect, fighting for our proper representation and rights: that’s what’s necessary.
