About the Author

Mark Zupan is a Paralympic medal winner and the star of the MTV/ThinkFilm documentary Murderball. He lives in Austin. Tim Swanson is the West Coast bureau chief for Premiere magazine. He lives in Los Angeles.


Paralympic medal winner Zupan's hope in writing this book is that "when people read this book, they will be reminded that you can stage a comeback even when you think you've lost everything." However, it's misleading to say you've "lost everything" when, in fact, you threw it away yourself. The best thing about this memoir, cowritten with Swanson (West Coast bureau chief, Premiere magazine), is that it is honest in every graphic detail, from erections to elimination but it's certainly not inspirational. Zupan began his freshman year at Florida Atlantic University as a star soccer player and a hard partier. But all the fun and games came to a sudden end when excessive underage drinking led him to pass out in the bed of a friend's pickup. The driver, also drunk, lost control of the truck, causing the still-unconscious Zupan to fly out and roll down an embankment and into a creek. He broke his neck, nearly drowned, and became a quadriplegic. His "comeback" is that he reentered college; rejoined the athletic world playing a wheelchair sport called quad rugby, a.k.a. murderball; and started partying again. Not a necessary purchase.
