Kathryn Interviews Jonathan Mooney, NY Times Best-Selling Author of “Normal Sucks”
Episode #4889
July 11th, 2018
This intimate, no-holds barred memoir will forever change how we view those with physical challenges and the families that love them. It's the story of two little girls growing up in the shadow of their charming and fitful brother and of a mother and writer imagining the world through the eyes of her son born with multiple disabilities, including cerebral palsy and autism. Eliza describes her pregnancy and the first few blissful months with Felix before the awareness, after months of grueling and disheartening testing, that their son's life, and their own, will not be at all like she had imagined. Ultimately, it is Felix and his sisters that inspire Eliza to found Extreme Kids & Crew, a nonprofit community center that connects with children with disabilities through the arts and play.
