"A groundbreaking collection of first-person writing on the joys and challenges of the modern disability experience: Disability Visibility brings together the voices of activists, authors, lawyers, politicians, artists, and everyday people whose daily lives are, in the words of playwright Neil Marcus, "an art . . . an ingenious way to live." According to the last census, one in five people in the United States lives with a disability. Some are visible, some are hidden--but all are underrepresented in media and popular culture. Now, just in time for the thirtieth anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, activist Alice Wong brings together an urgent, galvanizing collection of personal essays by contemporary disabled writers. There is Harriet McBryde Johnson's "Unspeakable Conversations," which describes her famous debate with Princeton philosopher Peter Singer over her own personhood. There is columnist s. e. smith's celebratory review of a work of theater by disabled performers. There are original pieces by up-and-coming authors like Keah Brown and Haben Girma. There are blog posts, manifestos, eulogies, and testimonies to Congress. Taken together, this anthology gives a glimpse of the vast richness and complexity of the disabled experience, highlighting the passions, talents, and everyday lives of this community. It invites readers to question their own assumptions and understandings. It celebrates and documents disability culture in the now. It looks to the future and past with hope and love."--… (mais)

A collection of 39 essays of various lengths, formats, intended audience, and tone, I didn’t love every essay—or think every one was written for my consumption (as a nondisabled person)—but this is a book I’m glad I read. Besides the essays I thought were really good, the further reading section at the end of the book gave me lots of ideas for what I can read to learn more about disabled people’s lives.

Nine of the essays I thought were the most eye-opening and informative were the following:
”Unspeakable Conversations,” by Harriet McBride Johnson
“The Isolation of Being Deaf in Prison,” by Jeremy Woody
“I’m Tired of Chasing a Cure,” by Liz Moore
“We Can’t go Back,” by Ricardo T. Thornton Sr.
“Why My Novel is Dedicated to My Disabled Friend Maddy,” by A.H. Reaume
“How a Blind Astronomer Found a Way to Hear the Stars,”by Wanda Diaz-Merced
“Falling/Burning,” by Shoshanna Kessock
“On NYC’s Paratransit, fighting for safety, respect, and human dignity,” by Britney Wilson
“The Fearless Benjamin Lay,” by Eugene Grant

This is a vital collection of essays and accounts which make up a cross section of many facets of the disability justice movement in the 21st century. It shows the diversity of the community and includes stories told be everyday people and those on the front lines in the disability justice movement. I respected that it included content warnings at the starts of essays which covered particularly sensitive topics. While I felt some pieces weren’t as fully developed as others, I can’t argue with the inclusion of any of the pieces. It’s an excellent collection and one of the best reads this year. ( )

I can't say that I enjoyed this book, I didn't take pleasure in the reading of it, when I finished an essay I didn't eagerly reach for the next page and yet despite that I think this is a good book. Reading these essays made me uncomfortable, made me squirm in my seat. It forced me to really think about things that I take for granted and made me aware of issues I hadn't had any knowledge of. I felt foolish at times, why had I never heard of these things (issues and movements within the disabled community) before? Why had I never stopped to consider my assumptions about what someone who is disabled would consider quality of life? To make an effort and do a little research? This book definitely gave me the kick I needed to start thinking critically about disability issues, showed me how little I know and gave me a jumping off point to other literature I can use to educate myself.

Thank you @netgalley and Penguin Vintage Books for this ARC of @disability_visibility. What a fantastic anthology! As a person with a chronic illness I am so grateful to this collection of authors. The experiences that these authors recount are, by turn, heart wrenching, relatable, funny, educational and most importantly, deeply human. I was exposed to people whose lives are being lived in the shadows and I was confronted with my own ableism in spite of being disabled myself. We have so far to go towards equality for people with disabilities. I commit to doing the work necessary to amplify the voices of people with disabilities. ( )

Disability is not a brave struggle or "courage in the face of adversity." Disability is an art. It's an ingenious way to live.
—Neil Marcus

Remember, you weren't the one

Who made you ashamed,

But you are the one

Who can make you proud.
—Laura Hershey

The word special, as it is applied to disability, too often means "a bit shit."—Stella Young
