Not So Different offers a humorous, relatable, and refreshingly honest glimpse into Shane Burcaw’s life tackles many of the mundane and quirky questions that he’s often asked about living with a disability, and shows readers that he’s just as approachable, friendly, and funny as anyone else. Shane Burcaw was born with a rare disease called spinal muscular atrophy, which hinders his muscles’ growth. As a result, his body hasn’t grown bigger and stronger as he’s gotten older—it’s gotten smaller and weaker instead. This hasn’t stopped him from doing the things he enjoys (like eating pizza and playing sports and video games) with the people he loves, but it does mean that he routinely relies on his friends and family for help with everything from brushing his teeth to rolling over in bed.

An NPR commentator’s memoir of surviving, and thriving, against all odds with spinal muscular atrophy. Ben Mattlin lives a normal, independent life. Why is that interesting? Because Mattlin was born with spinal muscular atrophy, a congenital muscle weakness from which he was expected to die in childhood. Not only did Mattlin survive, he became one of the first students in a wheelchair to attend Harvard, and went on to a career as a professional writer, contributing to publications from the New York Times and the Washington Post to Financial Advisor magazine, in addition to becoming a husband and father. Perhaps most important to his success, Mattlin’s life happened to parallel the growth of the disability rights movement—so that in many ways he did not feel he was disadvantaged at all, but merely different. In this witty, unsentimental memoir, he reveals his own experiences, as well as the larger story of those living with disabilities in the United States—with engrossing intelligence and “a unique perspective” (Library Journal). “Insightful, poignant, light-hearted and often hilarious . . . Like many of the best memoirs, this one brings you inside a beautiful mind.” —Jay McInerney, author of Bright Lights, Big City “Often funny and always eye-opening.” —Seattle Post-Intelligencer “Mattlin is candid about his challenges (e.g. finding a job, hiring attendants) but he isn’t looking for pity, just understanding. . . . Those who do pick up this memoir will find a unique perspective that compares with Harriet McBryde Johnson’s Too Late to Die Young.” —Library Journal

In the tradition of The Glass Castle and Angela’s Ashes comes the most unforgettable memoir you’ll read this year! “What did it mean to be the Tank Man’s son? To grow up overwhelmed by my father’s presence and personality? It was as if I didn’t exist, as if I was just something else for my father to crush.” So begins the haunting memoir of Mark Bouman as he recounts the events of his childhood at the hands of his larger-than-life, Neo-Nazi father in brilliant, startling detail. From adventure-filled days complete with real-life war games, artillery fire, and tank races to terror-filled nights marked by vicious tirades, brutal beatings, and psychological torture, Mark paints a chilling portrait of family life that is at once whimsical and horrific—all building to a shocking climax that challenges even the broadest boundaries of love and forgiveness. An epic tale of redemption and reconciliation, The Tank Man’s Son is a literary tour de force that is sure to become an instant classic.
