Places I've Taken My Body: Essays


In this "uncommonly wonderful collection of essays" (Rain Taxi), Molly McCully Brown explores living within and beyond the limits of a body--one shaped since birth by cere- bral palsy, a permanent and often painful movement disorder Throughout the book (which now includes an essay on Seamus Heaney, Notre Dame, and the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic), Brown constellates the subjects that define her inside and out: a disabled and conspicuous body, a religious conversion, a missing twin, a life in poetry.
