Abstract: 
From introduction: "...60 writers take on the on-again, off-again affair between mind and body. They take inventory part by part, feeling by feeling, urge by irresistible urge. They address birth and death and everything in between. The struggle to resist the status quo and take ownership of how we see and think about ourselves is fought in many ways on these pages. Not unexpectedly, the writers prove once again, hilariously, mournfully, tenderly, that the personal is political." Writers for this issue come from St. Leonard's House and from the following Chicago Public Library branches: Bezazian, Budlong Woods, Richard M. Daley, Hall, King, Mabel Manning.
