With so many "Nasty Women" and "Nevertheless, She Persisted" reading groups and book clubs popping up, this collection is an essential recommended read

As part of the Soft Skull editorial relaunch, we're reissuing backlist titles whose stellar impact and ongoing significance warrant their place in the cultural conversation. THE AMPUTEE'S GUIDE TO SEX was selected as the quintessential Soft Skull title with which to launch this reissue project

When first published in 2007, this spare book of poetry changed the conversation around disability. Weise’s verse is just as powerful, provocative, and necessary in 2017.

In a new introduction, Weise recontextualizes her work, revisiting her experiences while she wrote it, and revealing the collection’s urgency to our present moment.
