Summary, etc.:
Grue was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy at the age of three. Shifting between specific periods of his life-- his youth with his parents and sister in Norway; his years of study in Berkeley, St. Petersburg, and Amsterdam; and his current life as a professor, husband, and father. He intersperses these histories with elegant, astonishingly wise reflections on the world, social structures, disability, loss, relationships, and the body: in short, on what it means to be human. -- adapted from back cover
