Gabriela Brimmer (1947-2000), born with cerebral palsy, communicated largely by typing with her left foot on an electric typewriter, and by using that foot to point at letters and numbers on an "alphabet board" at the base of her wheelchair. Raised by her mother, Sari, and Mexican caregiver Florencia Morales Sanchez, Gaby gained admission to Mexico City public schools, attended the prestigious National Autonomous University of Mexico, and became a key figure in launching Mexico's disability rights movement. With the text structured by renowned writer Elena Poniatowska to alternate Gaby's voice with those of her mother and Florencia, this volume is both the memoir of an extraordinary woman and a unique and imaginative form of autobiographical writing.
