Reviews of My Body Politic
"The struggles, joys, and political awakening of a firecracker of a narrator.
. . . Linton has succeeded in creating a life both rich and enviable. With
her crackle, irreverence, and intelligence, it's clear that the author would
never be willing to settle. . . . Wholly enjoyable."
"Linton is a passionate guide to a world many outsiders, and even insiders,
find difficult to navigate. . . . In this volume, she recounts her personal
odyssey, from flower child . . . to disability-rights/human rights activist."
“The disability-rights activist leads an illuminating
tour of the country of the disabled.”
-People magazine Picks&Pans Books - Great Reads
“Linton takes readers through rehabilitation and
the decades that followed, emphasizing her growing awareness of how
the community of disabled people is "hidden" from mainstream
society. She intertwines her story with those of disabled people who
inspired her, such as Glenn, who showed her that dancing need not be
restricted to those who
can walk. … Required for both public and academic libraries,
especially those with psychology or education collections.”
