Description

This book offers a rich, insider's viewpoint of the lived experience of brain injury. Sherry, a survivor of brain injury himself, uses a cross-disciplinary theoretical approach (drawing upon the social and medical models of disability and combining them with lessons from feminism, queer theory, postcolonial and postmodern literature) to frame an enriching narrative about the lived experience of brain injury.
