9780807070857: Carnal Acts

Acclaimed personal writing from one of our most out-spoken essayists, on disability, on family, on being an impolite woman, and on the opporunities and "gifts" of a difficult life.

About the Author:

Nancy Mairs (1943–2016) is author of several acclaimed books, including Ordinary Time, Carnal Acts, Remembering the Bone House, and Plaintext.

From Library Journal:

Comprising previously published columns, "working" essays, and a short story, this collection provides a clear and trenchant portrait of a literary woman working within the context of both our shared contemporary culture and a personal physical disability. As in Remembering the Bone House (LJ 4/1/89), Mairs provides an unflinching analysis of the effects of multiple sclerosis on her personal, professional, and emotional life. While each of these pieces may best be read alone, together they succeed in announcing a coherent and compelling consciousness of the effects and countereffects of physical limitation, social trust, fear, and courage. For creative writing collections as well as libraries serving caretakers, families, and afflicted persons--in short, for most general readers.
