Rebecca Taussig’s humor and passion shine through in her lively delivery of Sitting Pretty, an illuminating collection of essays about disability. AudioFile’s Michele Cobb discusses this new audiobook with host Jo Reed. Taussig captures the ups and downs of ordinary life in a disabled body: dating, navigating her first year of teaching, searching for an accessible apartment. Part wake-up call, part call-to-action, this audiobook will resonate with anyone who lives in a body, disabled and nondisabled alike.
