Born with cerebral palsy, Jewell inspired a generation when she became the first person with a disability to appear in a recurring role on prime-time television. The book's title refers to both Jewell's sexuality and her struggle growing up with cerebral palsy. Describes her experiences from her traumatic birth in Buffalo, New York, to her rise to stardom as a stand-up comic to becoming a television star, as well as her downward spiral, tax problems, drug addiction, and marriage. Some descriptions of sex, some strong language. 2011.
