Kim : a true story : the powerful account of one woman's disability and her quest for justice


"'KIM' is the extraordinary story of Kim Morton, thalidomide victim, mother of three and campaigner who takes on multi-million pound empires in her quest for justice. A drug administered during pregnancy and hundreds of babies had to face lives of disability and hardship. Kim was one of those babies. This book details the drama of the campaign, the despair and pain, a hunger strike, a visit to Number 10 Downing Street, thalidomide in Brazil, lawyers attempts to stop the campaigners in the interests of 'Big Business' and much more. Ceaseless efforts to focus the public's attention on this problem have not diminished her zest for life. The humour, the sparkle and her bubbly personality shine through like a beacon."--From back cover.
