Determined to live outside the confines of his disabled body, author Christoph Keller puts his life into perspective through wit and imagination. In this colorful memoir, Keller shows us that sometimes moments of great weakness can be moments of great happiness.At fourteen, Christoph Keller was diagnosed with a hereditary neuromuscular disorder called spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) that should have confined him to a wheelchair by the age of twenty. Defying doctors’ advice to “take it easy,” he began to appreciate every moment by living each day to its fullest. By embracing the memories of an imagination-filled childhood, Keller was able to accept his alcoholic father and an ever-changing disability. This account of Keller’s experience demonstrates that every life can be full of laughter.
