by | Read by Nnedi Okorafor

Biography & Memoir • 2.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Fans of Okorafor's Africanfuturist fiction will enjoy hearing her narrate her memoir and discovering some of the roots of her celebrated stories. Okorafor was a skilled athlete at age 19 when she had surgery to correct her worsening scoliosis. When she awoke, she found she was one of the unlucky one percent who become paralyzed during spinal surgery. In a warm and straightforward voice, Okorafor recounts her dawning realization that her legs no longer worked, her intense effort to reawaken her legs, and the visions she experienced during that time. When her body broke, she discovered a passion and skill for writing about creative and fantastical worlds. Writers looking for inspiration should seek out this audiobook, narrated with confidence by a masterful author. E.E.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2019]
