About this item

Literary Nonfiction. Disability Studies. When she was 22, Louise Krug had brain surgery that saved her life but left her with physical impairments. Now, ten years later and embarking on marriage, motherhood, and a college teaching career, she still struggles with knowing how to live. In her startling and hilarious memoir, TILTED: THE POST-BRAIN SURGERY JOURNALS, Krug uses the third person to explore driving to hearing aids, neighbors and mom-friends. With both deadpan humor and keen introspection, Krug examines the micro and macro challenges of living a tilted life. Simple acts like posing for photographs, riding a bicycle, and even haircuts are suddenly major hurdles. But so are more complex issues like the relationship with her mother and parenting. Krug gives readers a ringside seat as she grapples with her increasingly complicated self- image. A story of dealing with her demons and learning about inner strength, TILTED teaches us that, ultimately, your opinion of yourself is the one that matters most.
