Recovering self-esteem and trust, in herself and in others, is harder than she expected. Raynor and her husband Moth continue to face his debilitating illness, until an incredible gesture by someone who read The Salt Path changes everything. This book is about readjusting to life after homelessness, but also about recovering trust and self-belief after a traumatic event - feelings that can translate to many episodes in the life of any of us.

              A groundbreaking collection of first-person writing on the joys and challenges of the modern disability experience- Disability Visibility brings together the voices of activists, authors, lawyers, politicians, artists, and everyday people whose daily lives are, in the words of pl...aywright Neil Marcus, an art . . . an ingenious way to live. A Vintage Books Original. According to the last census, one in five people in the United States lives with a disability. Some are visible, some are hidden--but all are underrepresented in media and popular culture. Now, just in time for the thirtieth anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, activist Alice Wong brings together an urgent, galvanizing collection of personal essays by contemporary disabled writers. There is Harriet McBryde Johnson's Unspeakable Conversations, which describes her famous debate with Princeton philosopher Peter Singer over her own personhood. There is columnist s. e. smith's celebratory review of a work of theater by disabled performers. There are original pieces by up-and-coming authors like Keah Brown and Haben Girma. There are blog posts, manifestos, eulogies, and testimonies to Congress. Taken together, this anthology gives a glimpse of the vast richness and complexity of the disabled experience, highlighting the passions, talents, and everyday lives of this community. It invites readers to question their own assumptions and understandings. It celebrates and documents disability culture in the now. It looks to the future and past with hope and love.

              The Cubans: Ordinary Lives in Extraordinary Times

              The Cubans: Ordinary Lives in Extraordinary Times (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              A revelatory account of life in one of the most restrictive, isolated and misunderstood places in the world Famed for its equality and good health, sunshine and beauty, many celebrate Cuba, one of the world's five remaining Communist countries, for bravely holding out against the... rampant capitalism of the West. But after six decades of socialist state control, the Cubans themselves now tell a different story. Still the government decides what work you can do and where you live. Food is rationed, milk and eggs are often scarce and basic toiletries unavailable. Buildings collapse and rubbish goes uncollected. Millions break the law every day to run small businesses or simply to get by. In the desperate 1990s, after Soviet support for Cuba's economy disappeared, people resorted to making steaks from grapefruit rinds and hair dye from old batteries. Those who attempt to cross the eighty miles of ocean to Florida have at times been imprisoned, tortured and even killed. And yet with no free press to report such crimes or galvanise opposition, the regime shows few signs of loosening its grip. In this pioneering work of life-writing and reportage, Anthony DePalma reconstructs the interwoven stories of five ordinary citizens and their families - some whose loyalty to the system led to great personal reward and ultimately disillusionment, others turned against it by tragedy - to lay their complex reality bare. Through their extraordinary journeys, from Castro's heyday, through the devastation of post-Soviet collapse, to the false dawn and recent retrenchment of recent years, we see how the revolution that once inspired its people has tested their faith, and we witness the daily acts of heroism and the endlessly adaptive resilience of a people determined to survive.
