Mary MeigsISBN: 0889225052;
Book Description An exquisite painter; intellectual; social activist; and articulate lesbian feminist, Mary Meigs began her writing career at age sixty. She suffered a stroke in 1999. Undaunted, she embraced her new discontinuous fate with both a penetrating curiosity and an utterly undiminished will to create. New, discrete forms of writing emerged: an incisively contemplative journal; a beautifully witty, illustrated fax correspondence; and a fascinating series of collaborative "free writing" sketches. Lise Weil has constructed a celebratory gathering of these magical pieces in Beyond Recall , Meigs's paean to the indomitable human spirit and its triumph over the infirmities and obstacles old age imposes on the human condition.
