READ & DOWNLOAD ç A Body Undone Living on After Great Pain A compelling account of recreating a life through writing memory and desireIn the early evening on October 1 2003 Christina Crosby was three miles into a seventeen mile bicycle ride intent on reaching her goal of 1000 miles for the riding season She was a respected senior professor of English who had celebrated her fiftieth birthday a month before As she crested a hill she caught a branch in the spokes of her bicycle which instantly pitched her to the pavement Her chin took the full force of the blow and her head snapped back In. Crosby teaches English and gender studies at Wesleyan University Her inclusion in this Sexual Cultures series has to do with her lesbian feminist ideology but also the new understanding of her body an accident forced upon her at age 50 While she was cycling a stick stuck in her spokes and she fell over onto concrete slamming her chin and breaking vertebrae in her neck that damaged her spinal cord In the midst of a full and physical life she became a uadriplegic The great irony was that in this she joined her brother Jeff whose MS had long since reduced him to a wheelchairHere in a memoir written 11 years after the accident she reflects on chronic pain and her new limitations even including bowel habits with blunt honesty as well as literary allusions Along the way she remembers some physical pleasures now mostly denied to her alcohol sex with her partner Janet and playing with the dog Her attitude to her diminished body may seem pessimistic but it s as realistic as it is sad I no longer have a gender Rather I have a wheelchair The future of my body can only be worse than it is now Nonetheless she never comes across as feeling sorry for herself I found this to be highly absorbing

READ & DOWNLOAD ç A Body Undone Living on After Great Pain That instant she was paralyzedIn A Body Undone Crosby puts into words a broken body that seems beyond the reach of language and understanding She writes about a body shot through with neurological pain disoriented in time and space incapacitated by paralysis and deadened sensation To address this foreign body she calls upon the readerly pleasures of narrative critical feminist and ueer thinking and the concentrated language of lyric poetry Working with these resources she recalls her 1950s tomboy ways in small town rural Pennsy. A Body Undone is a memoir about life after traumatic spinal injury and paralysis and I have an immense respect for Crosby and the work she s done to reclaim what she can of life and her openness about the losses that linger This is not a book that falls into the inspiration porn category and the writing varies between beautiful and brutalFor me one of the most affecting parts was her comparison of her paralysis to that of her brother who became paralyzed and died due to Multiple Sclerosis not injury The meditation on gender able bodiedness and sexuality was I don t uite know how to talk about its effect on me I started this year with reading some Ivan Coyote and I kept thinking about Crosby s experiences in relation to Coyote s experience of butchness and sexuality as intertwined with physical ability That s something I feel too though I don t pretend to be butch nor does Crosby claim the moniker unreservedly It s part of how society trains us to be capable is to be masculine To be dependent is to be feminine Femininity is inherently uncomfortable and is meant to be I m reading into the text but only a littleThe main weakness for me was that Crosby over academicizes She s an academic so that makes sense and she s aware of the tendency but she s incapable of letting a statement stand without walking it back without crawling once inside of it and ripping apart her own experiences Memoir as a genre encourages such over analysis of self but that s not a strength
