Not All Superheroes Wear Capes

Quentin Kenihan

When he was a kid, Quentin Kenihan loved Superman. Ironic, really. Quentin didn’t need kryptonite to reveal his weakness - born with a rare bone disorder, osteogenesis imperfecta, his bones broke all on their own. When Quentin was seven, Mike Willesee made a documentary about him. Australians fell in love with his wit, and never-say-die attitude. Over the years he grew up before our eyes. But there was a dark side to his life. The true story was never told … until now.

A story of abandonment, drug addiction, dark days and thoughts of suicide. Battling through it all, Quentin’s resilience is inspiring. Quentin is now determined to live life the best he can. Just turned 41, he is a filmmaker, stand-up comedian, radio host, actor and film critic; he’s hung out with Angelina, accidentally ripped Jennifer Lopez’s dress, talked sex with Jean-Claude Van Damme, appeared in Mad Max and interviewed Julia Gillard, all the while showing that living in a wheelchair doesn’t mean staying still.

This is an unforgettable, brutally honest, at times heartbreaking memoir. Quentin Kenihan is living proof that superheroes don’t need capes, just the right attitude!
