How I Became a Human Being
- A Disabled Man's Quest for Independence
- By: Mark O'Brien, Gillian Kendall (Preface)
- Narrated by: David A. Gilmore
- Length: 9 hrs and 42 mins
How I Became a Human Being is Mark O'Brien’s account of his struggles to lead an independent life despite a lifelong disability. In 1955 he contracted polio and became permanently paralyzed from the neck down. O'Brien describes growing up without the use of his limbs, his adolescence struggling with physical rehabilitation and suffering the bureaucracy of hospitals and institutions, and his adult life as an independent student and writer. Despite his physical limitations, O'Brien crafts a narrative that is as rich and vivid as the life he led.
