Reading from Eli Clare's book Brilliant Imperfection: Grappling with Cure

Come hear writer, activist, and poet Eli Clare read from his brand new book Brilliant Imperfection: Grappling with Cure (Duke University Press 2017). Brilliant Imperfection combines memoir, history, and critical analysis to explore cure—the deeply held belief that body-minds considered broken need to be fixed. Clare grapples with cure as a knot of contradictions, weaving together race, disability, sexuality, class, gender, and environmental politics. Ultimately Brilliant Imperfection reveals cure to be an ideology grounded in the twin notions of normal and natural, slippery and powerful, necessary and damaging all at the same time.
