              Caro Llewellyn?s family was unconventional from the beginning. Her parents met in hospital, where her father, confined to an iron lung after contracting polio, seduced his nurse and married her.Growing up, Caro watched her father embrace life, undaunted and ingenious in the face ...of his severe paralysis. From him, she learned courage; from her writer mother independence. She fell in love with literature and writers; when she was asked by Salman Rushdie to direct a festival in New York, she felt she?d been offered the life of her dreams.Until one day, jogging through Central Park, she lost all feeling in her legs. Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, Caro?s world shattered. She knew all too well what life in a wheelchair meant, and, faced with her own mortality, that she must look back at her father?s exemplary fortitude and grace to find a way forward. An at times emotionally brutal memoir of family, vulnerability and purpose, Diving into Glass is a smart, often funny portrait of the realities of disability and an intimate account of three lives filled with astounding vigour and audacity.
