During the early fifties, nothing seemed impossible. There wasn't a problem that couldn't be solved, an enemy that couldn't be licked. So thought America, so thought fourteen-year-old Charles Mee -- until he collapsed one night at a dance, and his dreams vanished. Polio. Every parent's nightmare. Next to Communism, it was the great enemy -- ruthless, rampant, and contagious. In beautiful prose, Mee unravels the mysteries of his Cold War youth, voicing the mind of a child with a potentially fatal disease and of a man whose recognition of himself as a disabled outsider heightens his brilliance as a storyteller.
