Still Me Press Reviews

It is best to come to a book with as few preconceptions as possible. All too often one can judge a book by its cover, and the cover of Still Me is somewhat off-putting, but give it a chance. It is impossible not to feel moved by the plight of Christopher Reeve, aka Superman, and his family, following his tragic riding accident. His active, athletic life was transfigured when he became a quadriplegic, an independent man who became utterly dependent on others. The accident, which made headline news, changed the author's life in more ways than one, and it is worth reading about. Reeve is surprisingly honest and self-aware - this is inspirational, humbling stuff. (Kirkus UK)
