Description

"Steve Brown takes us on a profound journey of his many steps, the many turnings of the wheels that have borne him through his life to the present moment. His shock, his anger, his bitterness, and, ultimately, his courage in the face of adversity, not only educate but remind us of his fine humanity as well as our own. His advocacy doesn't preach but teaches. With words describing his life and the lives of those close to him, he opens a wide door through which any who can read or care to grow can pass." --Mark Medoff, Author of "Children of a Lesser God" "Disability culture is at the heart and soul of the disability movement, and in Steve Brown's writings we see that culture shining in all its glory. " --Mary Johnson, Editor, "Ragged Edge" magazine ""Movie Stars and Sensuous Scars" is a powerful book. I strongly relate to Steve's writing and ideas. The writing is clear and flows well. The ideas are beautifully radical. He gives true insight into disability and people with disabilities. His is a voice demanding to be heard." --David Pfeiffer, "Disability Studies Quarterly "editor
