At twenty-one, poet Sarah Manguso developed a neurological disease so rare it didn't even have a real name. A wildly unpredictable disease that appeared suddenly and tore through her twenties, vanishing and then returning, paralyzing her for weeks at a time, programming her first to expect nothing from life and then, furiously, to expect everything. Manguso looks back at the plight of her own body, laboring under pain and illness, with honesty, biting intelligence, and unsentimental wit. Written in surgically precise prose, with a poet's eye for brevity.
