Essayist Gary Presley has just published a memoir about (among other things) living with post-polio syndrome.
By Rebecca Kellogg
The memoir Seven Wheelchairs is Presley’s first foray into book-length work. His background as a writer of essays is clear in the form of the chapters—many of which read as stand-alone stories. Indeed, a few of the chapters began life as essays that have appeared in other publications. Gathered together and given an over-arching narrative, they tell the story of one man’s life, sharing his sadness, his anger, and his joys.
