9780099257288: Still Me

Through his leading role in the three Superman films, Christopher Reeve became so closely identified with the superhero that he wasn't just seen as the actor who played Superman, he was Superman. Which is why the tragic riding accident which left him paralysed from the neck down shocked the world. Superman was not superhuman. It is also why he is now the world's most recognisable person in a wheelchair. In true superhero style, Christopher Reeve refuses to resign himself to the life of a quadriplegic, and is actively campaigning to raise the profile of spinal-cord injury victims and research. Although he was initially told that he would only ever be able to move his head, he can now shrug his shoulders and breathe alone for increasing periods of time, and is determined that he will walk again. It is this extraordinary courage and determination that has made Christopher Reeve the internationally admired figure that he is, and it is this bravery which makes this autobiography about his paralysis and his journey to recovery such a powerful and moving story.

Review:

"A story of enormous depth: honest, intelligent and compelling. I have rarely read anything as moving" ( Sunday Times)

"Brave, funny and deeply moving" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"Fascinating and utterly lacking in self-pity" ( Guardian)

"Through his honesty, dignity, and clarity of purpose, Reeve has created an involving book and a meaningful life" ( New York Times Book Review)

"Still me redefines the idea of hero . . . In this detailed and well-written autobiography, Reeve proves that, in many ways, he has transcended previous accomplishments through his courage and character" ( Boston Globe)

About the Author:

Christopher Reeve established a reputation as one of America's leading actors through his role as the world's favourite superhero, Superman.

Nothing is Impossible, his follow-up autobiography to Still Me, was published by Century in 2002. He died in 2004.
