About Us: Essays from the Disability Series of the New York Times

Unabridged Audiobook

Publisher: HighBridge Company

Date: September 2019

Duration: 9 hours 39 minutes

Summary:

Boldly claiming a space in which people with disabilities can be seen and heard as they are-not as others perceive them-About Us captures the voices of a community that has for too long been stereotyped and misrepresented. Speaking not only to those with disabilities, but also to their families, coworkers, and support networks, the authors in About Us offer intimate stories of how they navigate a world not built for them.

Since its 2016 debut, the popular New York Times 'Disability' column has transformed the national dialogue around disability. Now, echoing the refrain of the disability rights movement, 'Nothing about us without us,' this landmark collection gathers the most powerful essays from the series that speak to the fullness of human experience-stories about first romance, childhood shame and isolation, segregation, professional ambition, child-bearing and parenting, aging and beyond.

Reflecting on the fraught conversations around disability-from the friend who says 'I don't think of you as disabled,' to the father who scolds his child with attention differences, 'Stop it stop it stop it what is wrong with you?'-the stories here reveal the range of responses, and the variety of consequences, to being labeled as 'disabled' by the broader public.
