Omtale I live a life like yours
Jan Grue was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy at the age of three and began using a wheelchair not long after. In this lyrical memoir, he uncovers what it means to have lived, and to continue to live, in a body that the world struggles to accept as normal. Writing with humour and bracing frankness, Grue draws from art, fiction and criticism to forge a literary language that can tell his story. He revises the clinical definitions of his childhood medical records, undoing their definition of his body as defective. He writes movingly of his love for his wife Ida, and the endless possibilities that he perceives in their young son. Unflinching yet always compassionate, 'I Live A Life Like Yours' is a groundbreaking memoir that fiercely and tenderly rewrites our understanding of the body, relationships and family.
