Hot Cripple: An Incurable Smart-ass Takes on the Health Care System and Lives to Tell the Tale

Hot Cripple: An Incurable Smart-ass Takes on the Health Care System and Lives to Tell the Tale - Hogan Gorman Sobering, infuriating and really engrossing, this book tells the story of what happened to Gorman, an actress/waitress without health insurance, after she got hit by a car flying down the street at 40 mph. She tells about her journey into penury and public assistance with relentless cheerfulness and verve. I felt for her, every word of the book. I recognize the knife edge she walked on and I dread the day I might stand in her shoes. Recommended.
