|Using a mixture of prose and poetry, Angie C. Orlando shares indelible stories about growing up in a small Ohioan town, complete with posing for family pictures, watching high school football games, and playing saxophone in a marching band. Yet she is equally funny and unflinchingly honest about how classmates, medical professionals, and others have viewed her multiple disabilities, all of which had gradually became apparent over time. Through it all, she leaves her abusive husband and endures her brothers suicide to become her own person.
Angie C. Orlandos prose is poetic and plainspoken at the same time. It slips into your heart and settles there to tell an unforgettable tale. Through the Tunnel bears testimony to our capacity for coping with change and transcending trauma. John Lee Clark, author of Where I Stand: On the Signing Community and My DeafBlind Experience
Angie C. Orlando lives in Kent, Ohio with her son and two cats. This is her first book.
