His legacy lives on in his collected works he left behind for us to share, to use wisely and critically to improve the lives of people living with disabilities. His collected works, both fiction and non-fiction, as well as his now classic autobiography, At the other side of light, can be found on this site. The later can also be found as an audio book, presented by Vera Demjen.
