Book Launch: Able-Bodied

You are invited to the launch of:

Able-Bodied: Scenes from a curious life by Leslie Swartz

A large Wagnerian grandmother. A great-aunt known as “the Buchenwald chicken”. Shame and misery on the sports field. A club-footed father who disappeared to the golf course every weekend.

Able-Bodied is available at Lobby Books for R190

Able-Bodied is a unique account of how being the son of a disabled man and the product of an eccentric family brought Leslie Swartz to a professional life working with disability issues.

It is a fascinating blend of personal narrative, anecdote and reflection on society, medicine and ethics.
