Now readers can experience the hottest of the hot, the best of Best Women's Erotica of the past six years, since the series began in 2000. This fearless collection covers a thrilling range of women's sexual desires and exploits — straight, lesbian, bisexual, rough, delicate, dangerous, imaginative — by writers as accomplished as Isabel Allende, Carol Queen, Maryanne Mohanraj, Hanne Blank, Alison Tyler, and Helena Settimana.
The author was nineteen when faced with this difficult life situation. She worked through years of denial, anger, resentment, and fear; she battled with the medical profession, the educational system, and the vast array of social service providers who invaded her life. Her journey radicalized her with regard to the way society treats people with disabilities; by the time Daryl reached adulthood she was involved with and writing about the Disability Rights Movement. She speaks with absolute candor about personal difficulties and social injustice. She tells her story with unflinching self-examination, with no attempts to be "inspirational." She shows what it's really like to raise a child with a disability in America, particularly in the uncaring social climate of thirty years ago, some aspects of which persist even today.
