simple amazing grace redefines that world weary word heroIn these lyrical searing pages Guest manages to break our hearts and put them back together again Ann Hood author of The Red Thre This gripping memoir is an homage to resiliency strength and courage It is written by Paul Guest now 27 who had a cataclysmic accident when he was 12 years old While riding his teacher s old 10 speed bicycle which had no brakes he crashed and broke his neck Since that day he has been confined to a wheelchair virtually a uadriplegicPaul is a poet and this book is written in a straight forward no nonsense manner The memoirs s themes are tough and some of the book is painfully difficult to read However he is at no time maudlin and the poetics of his words cry out from the page This is a man who knows his vocation who was born to write The first poem I ever wrote came to me like an accident of the mind A blip noise that had no apparrent cause Paul was thinking of nothing particularly literary watching the sky and the visible world happen outside the window when he began to hear in his head the rhythms of language the propulsive patterns of a poem and though he had no idea why it was suddenly imperative that he write it down There was no doubt none that I had stumbled on to something essential about himself who he was and who he might become and all around him the future seemed to crackle like a storm This is what I am supposed to do he thought After that moment he never doubted itPaul s journey to self discovery begins when he is twelve years old He is graduating from sixth grade and is invited over to his favorite teacher s house She gives him a reading test which he is able to ace from beginning to end He is in the gifted program and is obviously verbally gifted well beyond his years His teacher loans him a very old bicycle so old that it is covered with cobwebs Paul knows the brakes don t work but figures he can steer the bicycle to safety when the time comes However when the time comes Paul lands in a drainage ditch with the third and fourth vertebrae of of his neck broken The treatment he received at the time of the accident was not state of the art and may even have made his situation worseHe spends months in an Atlanta rehabilitation facility undergoing extensive and painful therapies and surgeries He is able to remain in rehab until he reaches the point where they feel that he will no longer make any improvement This comes sooner that Paul would like He is released to his home where his wheel chair is too narrow to fit into the bathroom and he has to be carried by his mother His pride is in shambles He likes naked a lot of times for washings examinations changing of urine bags etc Though his family is tender with him Paul feels remote and other In the rehab center he felt like one of the others as though he fit in Disability isn t so much about the loss of control as it is about the transferal of it From yourself to someone else to loved ones strangers To devicesPaul begins to regain some sensation in his body most at chest level or above These sensations don t improve his movement or control over his body However some of these sensations are very painful and he also suffers from very painful leg spasms especially at night He talks candidly about his fears You enter this place And you wait For your body for your nervous system for the manifold nerves which comprise it to do something to do anything for your faithless skin to pebble with gooseflesh in a draft of cold air for one muscle out of the six hundred gone slack to convulse back to life for the most desperate fears within you to recede And whatever it is you fear and all of it is elemental whether you ll walk again or dress yourself or eat without help make love all these fears are not assuaged by your time here Those fears are systematically stokedPaul thinks a lot about who he is now and who he once was Luck beyond luck gilded me If I couldn t lift my arms I could breathe I could see I could move of my body than any diagnosis could have ever sanely promised Great grief filled me up I seemed to breathe it but what freed me was this if my arms never worked again never dressed myself if I depended on others to do these things for the rest of my life I no longer had to be or even could be who I once was What I once was I was broken And new It is this sense of newness that propels Paul Despite pain isolation and loneliness he finishes high school then college and manages to get a Master of Fine Arts in poetry Using a mouthpiece to type we writes out his beautiful mesmerizing poems one at a time We take for granted that if we want to write about something in the middle of the night we can reach for our pencils pens pad or computers and go at it This isn t the case for Paul He can t reach for pen and paper computer or any aids for his writing He must wait for morning and because of this he has lost many poemsHe is blessed with a supportive family who help him individuate and reach his potential They offer kind support without enabling Paul is pushed like a baby bird out of the nest and he learns to fly He flies to all kinds of adventures some of which we share with him smiling and others that reuire kleenex When he has his first book of poetry published when he makes his closest friends when he is able to be intimate with the woman he loves we cheer for him When he s mugged in an elevator while he is helpless to do anything to fight back we are angry at his perpetrator and sad beyond measure at Paul s plight We share his feelings of harassment at his job in Tuscaloosa and wish we could give his supervisor a piece of our minds When his day caretaker brings his Romanian father in to try an old world remedy for Paul s twisted ankle we hold our breaths because it reuires setting fire to Paul s skin Oh my GodPaul talks elouently about the first poem he ever wrote and his rush home to write it Along the way he worries whether the automatic doors to his apartment will work whether the elevator is broken down are the chair lifts in the buses functional All those things that able bodied people take for granted can create huge and sometimes insurmountable challenges for PaulPaul has an ebullient curiosity about the world an energy to explore his surroundings and the spirit of a poet His resilience is a lesson to us all He perseveres and he creates beauty and loveliness from his world He is a person of sensitivity and empathy watching others for signs into their souls This book is not meant to be an inspirational book or a religious book It is a book about a man who despite great odds goes on to make a uality life for himself drawn from the creative spirit within him that calls out to him for
