Double Take

After perusing an article on Salon.com about a new book on the double takehistory and recent popularity of the memoir form, I did a finger-on-the-spinning-globe style selection of a book to blog about.  That my hand was drawn to a memoir is simple coincidence.  But this particular book trumps any argument some may have that contemporary memoirs are just different people telling the same stories (about divorce, growing up, etc.).  This one is written by a Montana native, Kevin Michael Connolly, a 24-year-old who was born without legs.  The title of the book stems from his photography exhibition, which documents the stares of others, directed at him, in countries across the world.  The memoir gives the story of his travels, as well as his experiences growing up legless.  We have the memoir in stock.  Check out the trailer:
