(BIO)

Description


In this poetic, introspective memoir, Kenny Fries illustrates his intersecting identities as gay, Jewish, and disabled. While learning about the history of his body through medical records and his physical scars, Fries discovers just how deeply the memories and psychic scars run. As he reflects on his relationships with his family, his compassionate doctor, the brother who resented his disability, and the men who taught him to love, he confronts the challenges of his life. Body, Remember is a story about connection, a redemptive and passionate testimony to one man’s search for the sources of identity and difference.

About the Author

"Refreshing in its lack of false inspirational tone. . . . To shape into coherence the raw material of almost unbearable life experience is always a form of victory. . . .  I wanted to shout hallelujah."—San Francisco Bay Guardian
