Overview

"A stunning account."―Kirkus, starred review

"This profoundly literate memoir of courage stuns and moves, and in its ferocious honesty, delights."―Mark Medoff, Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Children of a Lesser God

"A powerful look at what goes through the mind of someone whose life changes in the blink of an eye."―Booklist

Take It Lying Down is "a movingly intricate weave―a detailed and poetic chronicle of healing against all odds, an intense love story, a narrative of a young man's journey from Maine to New Mexico and adulthood, and a book of literary inspiration and wisdom . . . this is not a medical book, not a self-help book: it's a literate, occasionally theatrical, surprisingly buoyant, always philosophical and compelling journey through one man's life."―From the Foreword by Len Jenkin
