Push: My Father, Polio, and Me is an intimate, powerful memoir by Push’s daughter, exploring the devastation polio wreaked upon generations up until the 1950s. Sarah Passingham entwines the events that befell her parents before she was born, with memories of her father. She is a master storyteller, bringing scenes alive in vivid detail.And through it all, we are reminded of the success of modern medicine in liberating us from polio and other life changing diseases.
