A Laughter in the Lonely Night
A STORY OF DETERMINED MEN AND WOMEN WHO MADE AND HEARD THAT LAUGHTERThe fifteen men and women whose stories you are about to read never thought for one moment—while they were going through their particular kind of hell—that anyone would ever write a book about them. In the months and years during which they faced and fought their war with life they could think only such thoughts as “How will I face the future?” “How can I go on living?” “Why did this happen to me?” “Will the world ever accept me as an ordinary human being?”Today, these men and women, who became extraordinary human beings—each in his own way—tell their individual and incredible stories through Henry Viscardi, Jr., probably the one man in the world who could put down on paper all that they experienced, all that they won, all that they now—after victory—have to say to us.A LAUGHTER IN THE LONELY NIGHT is the guts-deep, unvarnished, often unlovely, but always thrilling account of fifteen people whom the world rejected as “cripples” and how they, together with hundreds more, crashed their way through their own self-rejection and the laughter (often of their own making) which they heard over and over again in the lonely night.Here is their story of personal and professional victory. Who are they? They are workers in the million-dollar-a-year industry called Abilities, Inc.—the world-famous company founded by the author, where only the severely disabled can get jobs, from the president (Henry Viscardi was born with stumps of legs) on down.Henry Viscardi has let them tell their stories in their own words, and throughout the book you can hear the many sounds their voices make—angry cries, determined statements, ribald jokes, tender encouragement, and laughter—the language of the kind of courage most people can only imagine.
