Book Guild, 2008 - 174 Seiten
COPING WITH DISABILITY. In April, 1988, Baroness Lane-Fox of Bramham, OBE, died a few weeks before her 70th birthday. A tireless campaigner on behalf of the disabled, she knew more than most the frustrations of wanting to play an independent role in the world and make her contribution to society, while being resolutely ignored, patronised or underestimated by that society. In this frank, modest and frequently entertaining memoir, she chronicles her lifelong battle with the effects of the polio she contracted as a young girl of twelve.Felicity Lane-Fox refused to complain about her condition, though she had reason enough to do so. She did, however, complain constructively about the way in which her condition was viewed by the able-bodied, and this touching memoir is a tribute to her indomitable spirit.
