EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

'A hymn to life, love, family, and spirit' DAVID MITCHELL, author of Cloud Atlas The vividly told, gloriously illustrated memoir of an artist born with disabilities who searches for freedom and connection in a society afraid of strange bodies. In 1958, amongst the children born with spina bifida is Riva Lehrer. At the time, most such children are not expected to survive. Her parents and doctors are determined to 'fix' her, sending the message over and over again that she is broken. That she will never have a job, a romantic relationship, or an independent life. Enduring countless medical interventions, Riva tries her best to be a good girl and a good patient in the quest to be cured. Everything changes when, as an adult, Riva is invited to join a group of artists, writers, and performers who are building Disability Culture. Their work is daring, edgy, funny, and dark-it rejects tropes that define disabled people as pathetic, frightening, or worthless. They insist that disability is an opportunity for creativity and resistance. Emboldened, Riva asks if she can paint their portraits-inventing an intimate and collaborative process that will transform the way she sees herself, others, and the world. Each portrait story begins to transform the myths she's been told her whole life about her body, her sexuality, and other measures of normal. Written with the vivid, cinematic prose of a visual artist, and the love and playfulness that defines all of Riva's work, Golem Girl is an extraordinary story of tenacity and creativity. With the author's magnificent portraits featured throughout, this memoir invites us to stretch ourselves toward a world where bodies flow between all possible forms of what it is to be human. 'Riva Lehrer is a great artist and a great storyteller. This is a brilliant book, full of strangeness, beauty, and wonder' AUDREY NIFFENEGGER

What does a monster with an angel's soul do when a prince comes along to steal his girl? He wants to kill him, of course. When the Gods meddle in the lives of mortals, personal disaster is assured, and disaster is coming for golem, girl and prince. ***** The Gryphon Taint was written to be a nice big read, with romance, with adventure, with trouble, and lots of all three. There is an angel whose soul was rent from his divine body a hundred years earlier, but who is now trapped in the hulking shell of a creature of sticks and mud. There is a girl, born hideously ugly, who may have elvish blood and in whom the Gods have taken a strange interest. And there is a prince whose bloodline boasts a link to a mythical heritage. If so, the girl shares it, for she is his distant cousin through a bastard line. ***** In the land of Ulmenir, where kings boast the blood of gryphons, some things aren't quite as they seem.
