Plaintext has won critical acclaim and a wide audience for author Nancy Mairs’s unapologetic views on agoraphobia, multiple sclerosis, and the challenges of being a woman in a patriarchal world. The provocative collection includes the widely anthologized essays “On Being a Cripple” and “On Not Liking Sex.”

From the Inside Flap:

"The difficulties and despairs through which she has passed have left Nancy Mairs with unique and moving stories to convey, as well as with a strong voice to tell them." --New York Times Book Review
"These striking essays by Nancy Mairs are so touching and heartbreakingly honest that one often has to put the book down and rest emotionally before reading on. . . . Readable and compelling, written with intimacy . . . and a swagger." --San Francisco Chronicle
"The lugubriousness and self-pity which one might expect to surround these subjects is absent. The prose is cool and the wit as dry as sundown in Mairs' Arizona desert, the jokes as witty as the bright pink flowers on my spiny cactus." --Women's Review of Books

About the Author:

Nancy Mairs was born in Long Beach, California, and grew up in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. She received an AB in English literature from Wheaton College (Massachusetts). From 1966 to 1972 she worked as a technical editor at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, the MIT Press, and the Harvard Law School. In 1972 she moved to Tucson, Arizona, and taught high school and college composition courses while studying for an MFA in creative writing (poetry) and a PhD in English literature, which she was awarded in 1984. In the same year, her book of poems In All the Rooms of the Yellow House received first prize for poetry in the Western States Book Awards competition.
