Memoirs of Well-Being

Rewriting Discourses of Illness and Disability

As the body politics of life writing in the United States change, illness and disability memoirs receive considerable attention. Although these narratives are framed by a lack of health, they abundantly present health and do so beyond its binary relationship to the pathological. This book departs from previous scholarship by bringing into focus the writers' representations of cure, recovery, and healing as well as their reluctance to bring closure to their narratives and align their stories with traditional notions of health. These memoirs thus partake in the construction of alternative narratives of illness and disability.

»Wer zu literarischen Darstellungen von Krankheit und Behinderung forscht, findet in Reiffenraths Untersuchung eine Fülle von Ideen und Diskursen zum Thema, und das Schlagwort ›memoirs of well-being‹ dürfte den zukünftigen narratologischen Diskurs der Disability Studies bereichern.«
